When I was in second grade, I thought that a third grade teacher, Mr. Thomas, was actually another third grade teacher called Mr. Brock. I thought this because every time I passed Mr. Brock's class, I saw Mr. Thomas walking out of it. When Mr. Thomas turned out to be my teacher next year, I must've sounded pretty dumb saying that he looks like Mr. Brock. By the way, Mr. Brock is black and Mr. Thomas is white.
I used to believe that there was only one janitor who traveled around from school to school cleaning up.
A[n] nth grade teacher only had to finish the nth grade when he or she was in school.
In primary school when I was 5, my teacher used to frequently say "be good, or you'll go in my bad books". So I obviously thought she had a book where she noted down all the bad children's names
when i was in 2nd grade i used 2 believe that the last names of teachers were their first names. Like "Mishork" I was always wondering why teachers always had such weird names!
when i was in preschool i belived that after the the school year was over the teachers went to heaven. i pictured them circling around a swirly-colored thing when they left to go to heaven.
I believed that teachers went home and talked all the time about history, science and math. I felt really sorry for their kids.
When I was young, we were always told in school to stop telling bad things o other students in class.
What the teacher would say was, 'You must stop bullying each other. I'm fed up with hearing "so and so" did this to me, or "so and so" did that.
Now there was always this one person in the year above me, and I didn't know her name, so I always assumed, even though it wasn't, that her name was "so and so".
In pre school I heard my teachers on the phone occasionally and they would say something like, "Hi, this is Sue.."
I thought the teachers all had code names (as I had never heard a first name being used and it never occured to me that there could be any other name than their last name)
When I was little, my teacher would always tell us that she had eyes behind her head. I really took it seriously! I always used to try and see them, but if I tryed too hard I knew her eyes would see me. So I would throw paper when she bent down so her eyes were facing up, and I would try and hit her 'behind her head' eyes. Oh well, I thought, man will I show my kids when I have eyes behind my head, when I grow up!!
When I was in second grade my friend and I thought our elementary school was being taken over by elves. There were these big storage rooms out by the fence where the elves lived. There were huge machines that the elves would opperate and control the teachers' minds. We would go around all recess carrying sticks looking for these elves to kill them. We had a club called the Elf-Haters Club. Lol
When I was in third grade and I had changed schools, I always thought my old friends from my old school wore costumes and masks to hide themselves and pretend to be different students and one day they would surprise me.
When I was little, my mom worked at a preschool. When I was three and was old enough to go to school, I went to the same school where she worked, so she knew all of my teachers. One the first day of school I came home and said to my mom "Do you want to hear something really strange?" She said yes so I said "All of my teachers have the same first name." Since she was friends with most of the teachers she knew that was not true. She said "Are you sure?" and I said "Yeah, they're all named Mrs!" My mom almost died laughing and still tells the story to the teachers at all of the school events!
When I was about 7 I thought teachers were phycic, so I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up so I could also be phycic...
My little brother believed that his headteacher was really Agent Smith, and his teacher was Trinity in disguise!
I used to believe teachers never had to go to the bathroom
When i was in infant school (aged 4 or 5) my grandparents were looking after me, not wanting to go, pretended being ill and whilst driving past my nan said that if they see me in the car, they would come out and get me. Needless to say i put my head down and kept it down until we past the school.
when i was in the 3rd or 4th, the girls bathrooms used to have these little boxes on the walls that were air freshners. well we thought that they were cameras and the teachers and principle would check on us to make sure we werent goffing off.
When i was little i used to hold my pen differently to everyone else, my teahcer told me if i didnt stop it and didnt hold it how everyone else, my fingers would drop off, so i used to hold it properly only when she was watching!
Until I got my kindergarden yearbook, I'd been convinced that teachers didn't have first names. Why else would you have to call them "Mrs." or "Mr."? Thank God that the yearbook listed the teachers' first names...
