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.

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.

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!"

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.

My sister was in seventh grade and, had a school orchestra conducter named Mrs.Upper, and
whenever she waved the baton around, her bum would wiggle in that direction, which earned her the name, Mrs.Upperbutt, because it was believed she had a pendelum up her bum.
