When I was younger I used to believe that English teachers are aliens and they just want to disturb me in playing toys
I used to believe...when school teachers went to their "teacher's break room", they worked on and built rockets to fight the Soviets and Cubans (back during the Missile Crisis).
When I was in first grade, my teacher had drawings of characters based on the letters of the alphabet hanging on the wall over the windows of the classroom.
The one I remember most was Munching Mouth because one day my teacher put her hand to her ear and said that Munching Mouth just said he had an idea. At the exact same time she did this, some people had passed outside the window talking. For years afterwards, I actually thought I had heard Munching Mouth speak to her.
When I was little my mom used to tell me stories of when she was little and in "grade school". Then one day in 5th grade my teacher told us a story of when SHE was in "grade school". I though--OH MY GOSH, MY MOM AND HER WENT TO THE SAME SCHOOL TOGETHER! I almost raised my hand to to announce this fascinating coincidence to the class. But I was too shy. good thing
I used to believe that teachers never went to the bathroom during school. It never occurred to me that when they said they were going to the "office," they were really going to the bathroom.
I used to believe the teachers cried when school was canceled due to a "snow day." Since I've become a teacher, now I pray for snow even in May!
When I was younger in grade school whenever my dad would go see the teachers for parent-teacher meetings I would always get nervous about what they would tell him, I thought they were out to get me. When he would come home I would go hide in my room.
When i was in primary school, i always thought "why teachers never ill ? no work at home?no other activities other than classesssssss ? no leaves ? ????
I used to believe that boys couldn't be teachers because they weren't smart enough.
Like many others, I used to believe that teachers spent all their time at the school. I never saw them outside of the classroom setting.
Then, my first grade teacher invited the entire class to her house for a picnic. (It turns out she did this every year.) I was dumbfounded to learn that teachers were regular people.
When I was in Primary school, our teacher used to explain some things by starting a sentence with "When I was a little boy..."
Damn you Mrs Hudson, I thought that when I grew up I'd turn into a woman!!!!!!
When I was 5, just starting school. I used to believe that my teacher, Mrs Branch, was actually my second mummy!!! It toke alot of explaining from my REAL mum to make me understand she was only a teacher.
I believed that my first teacher had magical powers (like a dragon). I thought this because she could make my face go hot just by looking at me.
When my son was in the 4 year old transition class, he came home, very serious, and informed me that his teacher did not know her colors. Trying not to laugh, I asked him why he thought that. His reply, which was also very serious, was that everytime his teacher held up a color, she asked them, "Class, what color is this?" After turning back to his work he looked back up and said, "and to think, she is trying to teach us!"
I used to believe that teachers lived in ufos at night and tha's why they dressed so weird.
When I was 6, on the last day of term before Christmas, there was a rumour going round my class that our teacher was in fact a burglar who had put time bombs in our Christmas crackers so that wehen we pulled them, we'd be blown up!
I used to think that my school headteacher was called the Head Mischief as opposed to the Head Mistres.
Well, I only ever saw her when I'd been up to mischief!
When I was in kindergarten and year 1, I always wondered how the teachers knew just what to teach and when. My theory was (and I have never, ever told anyone this) that the teachers had invisible headphones that only teachers could see, and someone sat somewhere and told them over a radio what they had to do. Then later I discovered they use lesson plans and a syllabus and stuff. I'm not entirely sure I believed my theory myself, but it's what I came up with.
We all believed at primary school (aged 7-11)that any single teachers of the opposite sex were always having a secret, passionate affair. I suppose it was being kept a secret from our stern headmistress.
I thought that teachers were assigned to certain grades based upon how smart they were, i.e., the ones who taught first grade were the least intellligent, the 2nd grade teachers were a bit smarter than the first grade teachers, and the 4th grade teachers must be the smartest teachers of them all. Then I told my 2nd grade teacher a really big vocabulary word ("entomologist") that my 1st grade teacher had taught me the year before, and when my 2nd grade teacher truly didn't know what it meant, it blew my mind.
