When I was about 5 I believed that my teacher cycled around to the houses of all the children in the class to look in the windows and make sure they were asleep by 7pm! I was terrified if I was up beyond that!! God knows what my parents said to me to make me believe that!

In grade two i thought teachers were aliens who crash landed on earth millions of years ago and they pretended school was for getting a good education but they actually wanted to kidnap all the smartest kids and force them to be their slaves and fix their spce ship.

In Junior's school (6-11 yrs old) we seemed to have loads of fire drills. I used to stand in the cold and quietly seethe at the stupidity of our teachers...

I was convinced for some reason that one of them had gone into the staff room during lessons and burnt a piece of toast which set off the fire alarm.

This might have been because this was how our smoke alarm at home always went off - I wondered how long it can take for someone to wave a newspaper under the fire alarm to shut it up so we could go back inside. It didn't even matter how many times we were told we were having a fire drill 'some time next month', I would invariably whisper to whoever was infromt of me in line 'they burnt their bloody toast again!'

In elementary school, I used to think that the staff were hiding stuff (if I knew what at the time, I've since forgotten; it may have been captives) behind the mysterious locked doors that seem to be in every school.

As a young child, one of my friends and i decided for some reason, that all teachers turned into telephone poles at night. we asked our sports teacher if this was true. one night, while driving along, we noticed that one of the poles only had one light working and decided this must be our teacher, as she only had one eye, having lost the other in to a squash ball.

I used to think that teacher training courses only consisted of prospective teachers being taught how to have beautiful handwriting and that they practised doing their handwriting 24/7. It's just that teachers always had such perfect handwriting and I couldn't figure out how they ALL could. Furthermore, what else would primary school teachers need to be taught because they already knew everything there is to know about?!?

When I was in Kindergarten, the teacher said if you copied someone, your teeth would fall out. Now I understand that the teacher meant copying papers from other people.

One time the teacher elt us pick out what flavor chocolate we wanted and my friend copied what kind I got and I yelled "NO!!! YOUR TEETH WILL FALL OUT!!!" and she just said "Who cares, I already lost all of them."

I used to believe that teachers didn't actually have first names and they were all christened with the name 'Mr' or 'Miss' so they knew they were gonna be a teacher when they grew up.

In kindergarten, i had the most AMAZING teacher ever. she was funny, and sweet, and kind. she was my favorite teavher ever! (although she was my first considering it was kindergarten). Anyways, so when i got to grade one, i thought she was my teacher again! i was so excited to get to class on the first day, only to ind out that i get this different teacher? i was NOT a happy camper. i spent the first day of school crying my eyes out! then i made a friend and grade one was good again!

When I first heard the name J. K. Rowling (of Harry Potter fame) I thought it was Jake A. Rowley. As my class teacher at the time was called Mrs Rowley, I concluded that her husband was called Jake and had written the entire Harry Potter series.
If only it were true.

In primary I used to think that at lunch time all that teachers used to talk about in the staff room was their students and tell bad stories about them and plot evil revenges. In highschool i made a teacher swore that her and every teacher at school never said a word about a student. Im a teacher now and believe me my highschool teacher was lying haha probably not as bad as i thought but none the less funny when i look back on it now.

I had a dream that my sister got to eat in a very special canteen in our junior school, which had special food in it, thing is i didn't think it was a dream..
I kept asking my sister about it and asking her why she was so special and why she never came to 'our' canteen?
This went on for weeks until i had to get pulled aside by a teacher who showed me the room I thought was 'the special canteen'..turns out it was the cleaning cupboard!! oh dear I was embarrased!

I used to think that my teachers at school didn't have lives outside of school. I was shocked the day I found out my teacher was married and had kids of her own.

When the teacher would tell a child,"I'll keep an eye on you!"
i though she meant that she will take out her eye and keep it on the kid so that whenever the kid did something naughty-laser would come out from the eye and kill the child!!
lollll
