They used to call professional development days "teacher's workshops" when I was in school. I though they went to actual workshops, with benches and hammers, like elves. I was always disappointed they didn't bring they made to show the kids the next day.
When I was younger, I thought the teachers actually LIVED at school. I would get totally freaked out when we would see them at the store or outside of school.
I used to think teachers lived at school. Both of my parents were teachers, but I thought they were allowed to live at home just because they had me.
Kindergarten was the first time I ever saw a white board. I didn't know what it was. So, when my teacher took a marker and started writing on the board I told her she was being bad and shouldn't write on the walls.
My parents are atheist and I thought it was something unique about our family (not that we were the only ones, just that it wasn't common). When I went to school, we had to write a few things about ourselves. One of mine was "I don't believe in God." I'm not sure how the teacher took that.
There used to be curtains that covered the underneath of the cupboards at school, I was convinced that behind those curtains was a bed that the teachers slept and lived in when we weren't at school.
I used to believe that teachers never went to the bathroom. I believed this until I saw one walk to the bathroom.
I didn't think my teachers had lives. They didn't have families and the only friends they had were the other teachers in the school.
When I was young,I used to believe that our maths teacher was a mind reader.I don't know why I believed that but I always tried to avoid thinking of bad stuff when he was around.
Like many, I believed that teachers lived in the school, despite the fact that both my parents were teachers and were at home with me. I thought they would hang themselves up in coat closets. I remember dreaming about my parents hanging themselves up, and believed the dream to have actually occurred at some point.
My brother told me when I was four (he's six years older than me) that during nap time his teacher would walk around with a board with nails in it. She would hold the board close to your face to see if you were sleeping. So when I started school I believed the same thing and would never let myself fall asleep during nap time. My brother is 30 now, and still says it really happened. I still kind of believe him.
I used to believe that the school bus was really the school, and the teacher drove it. I thought they just drove around all day learning things.
I used to believe that teachers lived inside the closets of their classrooms.
I had a French teacher in preschool, and one day I asked if she lived in America or if she lived in France. She must have been joking but I didn't catch it when she told me that she lived in france and took a boat to my school every day.
I used to believe that teachers never smoked or drank because i never see them do it in their car/the school/or the parking lot!
When my teacher said, " I have eyes in the back of my head." I would imagine eyes staring at me from under her hair...This earned her great respect from all of the kids and I in Kindergarten.
I used to believe that all of the women teachers were witches and the men were vampires.
i used to believe that my preschool teacher had eyes in the back of her head.
I used to believe that teachers had a dressing room in the school where they put on their "teacher clothes" each day because they all dressed so similarly.
This one time at school we had a thing where we had to listen to people give opposing viewpoints on various issues. One was "should teachers be tenured". Having never heard that word before I thought they asked "should teachers be tender" and thought "what a weird question"
