Being an academic freak, I used to think that teachers had the power to transfer their superhuman intellect to us students. So, one day when I was in grade 3, I went around the school asking teachers for their autographs so that if they liked me, they would make me smart.
When I was younger, in first grade or so, I used to wonder where teachers went when we left. My teacher had a big supply closet, and I thought she lived in there. Every time she opened the door I would look for her food, and bed. If she even used those! I was so astounded that they didn't get to go home!
My teacher held out a hand to say, "stop" but I thought she wanted a high-five.
When I first started school we were told that we had to ask permssion from the teacher to go to the toilet, i took it a bit too literally and thought I had to do this ANY TIME I wanted to go to the toilet, following an embarrassing incident during lunch i was corrected.
When I was in kindergarten and year 1, I always wondered how the teachers knew just what to teach and when. My theory was (and I have never, ever told anyone this) that the teachers had invisible headphones that only teachers could see, and someone sat somewhere and told them over a radio what they had to do. Then later I discovered they use lesson plans and a syllabus and stuff. I'm not entirely sure I believed my theory myself, but it's what I came up with.
I used to believe that teachers had sex with each other to create new teachers as they all seemed the same and that way they would always be smart.
I used to think the school lollypop lady was there to hand out lollys to the good children and hit the bad ones with their damn pole thing.
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?"
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 about 7 or 8 we were told that if you thought really hard about 2 things at the same time your brain would explode, this was by a teacher as well
When I was 5, just starting school. I used to believe that my teacher, Mrs Branch, was actually my second mummy!!! It toke alot of explaining from my REAL mum to make me understand she was only a teacher.
I used to think that when you were at school, teachers slipped tiny cameras and microphones on you. When you got home, they would use high-tech equipment to see everything you did, taste, smell, hear, and feel! I behaved! Don't ask.
A[n] nth grade teacher only had to finish the nth grade when he or she was in school.
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.
We all believed at primary school (aged 7-11)that any single teachers of the opposite sex were always having a secret, passionate affair. I suppose it was being kept a secret from our stern headmistress.
I used to think that if you were the teacher's pet, you would turn into a hamster.
i used to believe that my preschool teacher had eyes in the back of her head.
I used to believe that all teachers were little old ladies with white hair and glasses and had English accents. I was really disappointed when I realized my teacher Mrs. Harrington (the name seemed English and old ladyish enough) was a young japanese woman.
I used to believe that you really had a permanent record that would follow you throughout your adult life. All my misdeeds of childhood would somehow prevent me from getting a good job.
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.
