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.
when i was young i thought that teachers were like witches ..they just teach and go away somewhere and return back to teach....i thought that they had no life....heheh
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.
When i first started school when I was 4, I believed the principal would report you to the cops and you'd go to jail.
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!
When i was little and in preschool, i was scared to go to the nurse because i thought she would have company, because, there was a bed, bathroom, sink, and a mini refrigerator, so i thought it was her house.
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!!
when I was in first grade our teacher was out on maternity leave and in her place was a young substitute. She had pale skin, and really dark hair, and she had really big teeth... or at least we thought so. Me and my friend were convinced that she was a vampire and every time she did something mean we would make a slash on a secret piece of paper then we tried to use the paper to prove to everyone else that she was a vampire....thankfully she either never found out or let it slide.
When i was in primary school, i used to think that when the teachers whent into the staff room, they where haveing a party or something, without us
When in my first year of school, I was convinced my female teacher was really my dad in disguise, sent to watch over me. I thankfully never told my teacher or my father this, because I felt I'd be in serious trouble if i rumbled his secret identity.
I thought teachers knew absolutely everything there was to know!
I also stared at the back of their heads for hours, looking for the eyes.
In elementary school, I used to think the teachers use to have different voices when they went into that faculty room. I always tried to sneak a peek before the door closed.
When I was in school i thought that teachers read scripts to say good moring blah blah blah
A science teacher I had in 7th grade actually stated that broccoli is actually miniature trees. Even at 13 yrs old I knew he was full of it!
In elementary school, I believed that teachers knew absolutely everything. That they could answer any question ever put to them. Now I know they are normal human beings and some of them don't know much at all.
substitute teachers....I had many strange beliefs about these odd people. The first time I heard of a substiture teacher I was about 5/6, and was told I'd be having one for a while. I thought that substitute teachers were robots, and found it amazing that my substitute teacher looked so normal. I then came to think that the substitute teacher was simply too normal to be a robot. So decided that instead it was a sort of clone of a real teacher. I believed that when people were made into teachers they had to have a clone of themselves made, so that there would always be enough substitue teachers. I somehow learnt that this wasn't true though. I then thought that they all lived together in a big house or factory type place miles and miles away..and they had to stay there all the time, just waiting around for a real teacher to phone up and say they were sick so a substitute would have to come in
I used to think Snow Days were holidays that the principal created, and on that day you were religiously obligated to play in the snow or else you would go to Hell.
My principal was really scary.
I teach year 3 in a primary school.I also recently got engaged. A teacher who works with me made a throw away comment about james bond, the children mis-heard and now believe I am marrying James Bond. They have even asked me "is it the old one or that one in the film?"
Last year I taught in a middle school where there was a running club (they also had a track team, but this was in the "off season") with about 50 kids. Their coach told the students that a mountain goat could run faster than a cheetah and I was asked the very next day (and several more days after that) if this were true. The coach had to go on the morning announcements a week later to tell the students it was a joke and that a mountain goat couldn't run faster than a cheetah. Some of the kids think she was pressured into telling them that.
