i used to think that at night all of my teachers turned into my soft toys so they could keep and eye on me.
When I was in kindergarden my teacher would tell the class that she would be right back because she need to use the "rest room". I always thought that she was going to take a nap for a few minutes because whenever we had to pee we all called it the "bath room". After all, we all took naps every day so why shouldn't she? So next time you're tired, tell everyone that you need to go to the rest room and take a little nap.
When I was a kid, I thought that teachers all went to the same school to learn how to be teachers. I also thought they knew everything in the entire world but they didn't have time to teach everything before you finished high school, which is why there were colleges. You could go there to learn more if you wanted to.
When I was in elementary school, there was an assembly. After one of the performances, one of the teachers yelled, "lets give these people a round of applause!" and she started clapping while moving her hands around in a circle, so I naturally believed that that was what a "round of applause" was. For years after that, whenever people mentioned a "round of applause", I would start clapping my hands in circles, wondering why no one else was doing it properly.
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.
When I was in first grade my best friend's mom was our teacher. They would always stay late after school for after school care but I just assumed that all teachers and their kids lived at the school. When I asked my friend which room she slept in she said, "You shouldn't sleep during school!" So then I figured that even though they lived at school all the time, they weren't allowed to sleep there. I believed this until 5th grade.
When I entered kindergarten I was told that our principles name was Mr. Chopp because when you were sent to his office he would chop you up into little pieces. The very first time that a little boy was sent to Mr Chopp's office I started crying hysterically because I didn't want him to die.
i used to think that when u where bad and got sent to the headmaster's office, i thoght you would be chained and locked in a cuboard for the rest of the day.
When I was young, I was told about the whole immaculate conception thing. Later on, when my fifth grade teacher told the girl next to me that she had a misconception, I honestly thought that it meant she tried to have a baby but it didn't work. For the rest of the year, I thought (and told all of my friends) that poor kid had a miscarriage.
When I was in kindergarten, I thought all teachers were robots because they never asked to go to the bathroom. I thought they just put human skin over their metal robot bodies
I used to believe that the last name of my teacher was the first name. My teachers name was Mrs. Leechan so I always thought she had the weirdest name.
i used to think that teacher would just apper at school in the morning, then dissappear agian at night...i never thought of them as real humans
When I was in first grade, I believed that all the teachers were robots. I thought that all the teachers would teach the exact same thing at the exact same time in unison. And when one would cough, they would all cough. Then I wondered, if one was sick, would they all need substitutes?
i used to belive my school teachers when they said our class was the worst class they ever had in their career.
Ok, so, I seriously thought that teachers never went to the bathroom, or ever left the classroom, and that when they led you down the hall to the lunchroom, (or wherever) it wasn't really them, but a clone that never spoke except to yell at you to be quiet.
I believed the clone belief until 2nd grade, and with the bathroom one until about halfway through 6th grade, when my math teacher asked me to tell the rest of the kids that she was going to the bathroom... I was seriously shocked.
I looked at her and said "You go to the bathroom, Ms. Shelstad?!"
She's really nice, so she just laughed and said, "Yes, all teachers are just as human as you are, and all humans have to "go" sometimes."

Also, I used to think (in 1st-5th grade) that teachers never had to swallow their spittle, and that their voices were always sharp and clear. Boy, was I wrong! One day, my 5th grade reading teacher, Mrs. Ryshen, came in with her voice completely lost. I was staring at her the whole day.
And then in 3rd grade, my teacher Mr. Bolard was typing at his computer and starting - no joke - drooling! I thought this was just preposterous!
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 used to believe that boys couldn't be teachers because they weren't smart enough.
I used to believe that one of my schools supply teachers was actually a dog-person, because of her jowls. I used to think she would go into the supply closets and morph into a dog once everyone had left school.
In my second year at primary school i thought that teacher never ate, never drank, never went home and never go to the toilet (i was so silly).
My kindergarten teacher used to get facelifts. My older brother told me that kids weren't supposed to know (and he would get in trouble for telling me), but when someone gets a facelift, their face is replaced with a new one. Many years later, I asked my parents. Of course, my brother doesn't remember telling me that...
