I used to believe that teachers had sex with each other to create new teachers as they all seemed the same and that way they would always be smart.
I used to believe that my teachers didn't poop.
It was the first day of school at a new school in 6th grade. my history teacher told us that in all the smoke detectors there were cameras so when he lfet the room he could still see us so none of us ever talked or made any noise when our teacher left the class
I used to believe that teachers were a separate species, immune to feelings and every day problems. I didn't think they ever got sick. Now that I'm a teacher, I see that some beliefs never die!
I used to believe that my fourth grade English teacher was a murderer. All the "big kids" told stories about her to scare us. It didn't help either when she would get mad and yell "If you don't get quiet right now, I am going to rip all your heads off!"
My kindergarten teacher used to get facelifts. My older brother told me that kids weren't supposed to know (and he would get in trouble for telling me), but when someone gets a facelift, their face is replaced with a new one. Many years later, I asked my parents. Of course, my brother doesn't remember telling me that...
I used to believe that teachers, along with parents, and people in office were a different species. I also thought that dogs were the same species as kids. I held that belief until I was 10. Strangely enough, I was a straight A student.
One day when I was nine I really annoyed my mother. She told me then that she did not know how my teacher could stand being around thirty third-graders all day; if she were a teacher there would have to be a keg in the teacher's lounge. I got curious and asked my teacher the next day if there really WAS a keg in the teacher's lounge. The next parent-teacher conference was not pleasant.
I used to believe that teachers built missiles when they went to the teachers lounge.
As a kid (and up until I was about 11) I believed that teachers were not actually allowed to have kids of their own. No idea where this came from or why it lasted so long. (I'm now a teacher!!)
When I was about eight, I thought that all teachers had bad breath. My mom said, "What's teacher's breath?" Turns out that every teacher I had had up until then was a smoker. I just thought it was part of being a teacher.
When i was in infant school we all used to eat our lunch in the classroom. One day my mum had given me iced gems to eat. on the back there was always a compatition. I would read the question on the back and shout out the answer as loud as i could. The teacher would ask me what i was doing. I told her that if i shout the answer loud enough the invisible camberas that secretly watched us all the time would hear me and i would win the prize.
I thought all teachers in school were married to each other
I had a teacher whose name was Miss Lee. But as a little kid only hearing the words I didn't realize that they were two words or where to separate them. When I went to spell her name I wrote Miss Sleep. At first I wrote Miss Slee, but slee wasn't a word, I thought, so I added a 'p'. Then I always called her Miss Sleep.
I used to believe that all teachers were little old ladies with white hair and glasses and had English accents. I was really disappointed when I realized my teacher Mrs. Harrington (the name seemed English and old ladyish enough) was a young japanese woman.
I used to believe that my teacher,Mrs. Fite, because of her name would fight kids and other teachers. Of course this is when I was in 1st grade. I liked to aviod my teacher because of that belief
When I first entered kindergarten, in December our principal left and a new one came. I used to think every year we switched principals and it was called changing principals day. I told everyone that, when in reality, the principal just quit, and we had the same principal all those years, except in the middle of fifth grade when the principal left in the middle of the year. It's a good thing I learned the truth by then, otherwise I would've thought it was a tradition every five years.
When I was little my mom told me that if you shew gum at school, the teacher would put it on your nose and make you wear it the whole day. Because my mom told me that, I believed it. I believed it for the LOGNEST time. Later, when kids began to bring gum into school, I would wonder why the teachers never said anything. I actualyl thought it was in a rule book that if a student is caught chewing gum they'd have to wear it on their nose. I must've been nuts to believe that for so long.
My little brother, when he was in 1st Grade, used to believe that his Principal had a bed of nails and he would make the bad kids lie on it. I think his idea might have come from the fact that the principal's name was Mr. Screws. He came home one day because he got into trouble at school and was terrified that the principal would come get him and make him use the bed. (We lived across the street from the main entrance which didn't help matters)
I used to belive that teachers were evil.....that why they made us do homework.
