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.
When at school i always feared a failure and believed that the teacher is always looking at me
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.
when i wuz in primary school, ther wuz this little library and there wuz a cupboard thing. me and some other kids wer in ther one time and the teacher ahd just left. there was a bang and one kid said a teacher killed children and the ghosts went round being naughty. then the fire alarm went off and we all ran out screaming.
When I was in year 7, I always believed that teachers didnt know much, because they were always asking us kids the answers to questions. I remember thinking that kids were far more clever than the teachers. I also stupidly thought that most teachers liked me because they kept putting kisses next to my answers
My best friend and I were convinced that a new male teacher was a spy, and spent ages trying to persuade the other kids this was so. One of his main complaints was that there never seemed to be any paperclips when they were needed, so we came to the conclusion that he was secretly stealing them and selling them, and that his complaints were just a cover. Thankfully, I was only 7 at the time and had an highly active imagination, so I have an excuse! But if you're reading this, Mr Mooney, I'm on to you...
When I first started school we were told that we had to ask permssion from the teacher to go to the toilet, i took it a bit too literally and thought I had to do this ANY TIME I wanted to go to the toilet, following an embarrassing incident during lunch i was corrected.
During my first few years at school, I kept hearing that "teachers have eyes in the back of their heads", so I thought that when someone became a teacher, they had to have an operation to get an extra set of eyes! I also wondered why a lot of lady teachers had long hair. What's the point in having eyes in the back of your head if you keep covering them up? (fortunately I didn't embarrass myself by asking that!)
I thought teachers secretly lived at school over the summer. They lived in big pickle jars full of some kind of fluid or maybe plugged into electric outlets to recharge in the small bathroom in the back of the classrooms. Why else would they stack all those boxes of Kleen-ex up in the windows?
I used to laugh about it until my son entered the first grade. I was pretty shocked to discover he had the same teacher I had... and, I swear to God, she hadn't aged a day!
I used to believe that teachers were people in the world who just happened to know everything! I never realized that they went to school!
I believed that teachers lived in rooms above the school gym.
I BELIEVED THE TEACHERS COULD READ MY THOUGHTS
When I was in second grade my teacher didn't want us leaning back in our chairs and told us "keep all four feet on the ground". I had no idea she meant the chairs, I thought she meant our real feet and didn't know why she said "four" when we all had two.
A primary school teacher once told me that if you looked behind the ears of new born babies youíd find a small curving relic scar. Itís where our gills used to be and has been passed down through the generations from when the first fish-like creatures flapped onto the land. Iím still tempted to check even now, though Iíve never found those scarsÖ
In 4th grade, my teacher told us we only had 2 minutes to go to the bathroom...so what did I do? Got in trouble in the hallway for running to the bathroom!
I used to believe the principal had a spanking machine in his office.
My Aunt Wilma told me the spanking machine at my cousin's school had an electrical short, and the shock you got hurt worse than the spanking, until they got it fixed.
When I was in grade school, I was under the assumption that whenever a teacher wrote "See Me!" on an assignment or test, she was commending me for a job well done. My head would swell with pride as I would prance back to my desk, certain I had done the best job of all. It wasn't until some time in my senior year of high school, when I recieved a paper back with "See Me" that it finally occured to me, what it meant. It didn't mean great, terrific, outstanding...it meant, there was something wrong!! It blew me away, all that time I thought I was just the smartest kid in class....
i used to beleve that at school the yard jooty book was a book that the teachers but kids in
I used to belive that my teacher was a alien unfortunately this was true mum and said.
When I was real little, I had a habit of chewing on wooden pencils. All my pencils had teeth marks all along the barrels. My teacher, whom I loved and trusted, told me that if I didn't stop, trees would grow in my stomach and the doctor would have to do surgery. I quit chewing pencils--I really believed what she told me!!
