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.
I teach middle school and one of my seventh graders asked me if teachers had eyes in the back of their heads. I said no and asked her why she believed that and she told me that her second grade teacher said that and she's believed her since then.
when i was in kindergarden i belived that i would have the same teacher forever. that my teacher would move up to first grade and be my teacher forever. i never wanted to have a diffrent teacher.
I used to believe the teachers when they said we'd have to write in cursive a lot when we got older... Boy was I wrong.
When I was in sixth grade I was deathly afraid of my science teacher. I swear I thought she was out to get all of us. I thought she had a pet cobra hiding in her purse and a pet chimera (animal hybrid of mythology) hiding in her closet that she released on students giving her a hard time. I'd hide behind other students and COULD NOT manage to smile in that class AT ALL. And once I SWORE I saw that chimera roaming the halls (it was probably just another student or a teacher). I was reading about cryptozoology and was looking for chimera sightings thinking one of them was her letting her chimera outside. She gave me nightmares all the time. It took me six months to stop fearing her and to get over my belief in her evil pets.
that teachers lived at school in their classrooms.
In elementary school I used to think that when you got homework, you were doing the teachers work, like they were pushing thier work off on you, and when you did "thier" work wrong they punished you for being careless with thier work by giving you a bad grade!
At primary school, my female teacher had a large walk-in store cupboard that she called the Marmalizer. She used to imply that if you were naughty she'd put you in there and bad things would happen to you! I did get to go in there once, and nothing happened. I was just lonely and bored in a store cupboard until the end of class!!! But we were all scared to death of the Marmalizer. I used to believe that there were monsters or something in there!
