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?!?
I used to believe that candles were made out of ear wax. I believed this until i annouced it to my teacher in front of class when i was 5 years old. Her laughter confirmed my false assumption.
When my teacher said, " I have eyes in the back of my head." I would imagine eyes staring at me from under her hair...This earned her great respect from all of the kids and I in Kindergarten.
There used to be curtains that covered the underneath of the cupboards at school, I was convinced that behind those curtains was a bed that the teachers slept and lived in when we weren't at school.
When I was 6 years old I used to believe my principle was a robot because whatever I did my dad comes to know
so I thought that my principle was a robot and use to come home before I did and give information to my dad and after giving information my dad used to hide him in a secret place in the house and I believed it till I was 8
I go to the school that my mum used to attend, and was very supprised when she said some of the teachers were the same as when she went there (about 25 years before me). I then came up with a theory that they froze the teachers of then holidays and then defrosted them at the begginging of the new term.
When I was in like first grade, I believed that teacher's last names were also there first. For example, I had a teacher named Mrs. Davies, and I thought her first name was Davies.
I used to think that teachers were really the morally upstanding people that they pretend to be during class. I thought teachers did no wrong. So one day when I was in the grocery store and encountered my 4th grade teacher, with husband, in a bad mood I had the shock of my life. She obviously was having a fight with him or on pms. Anyway, my mom in I were in the frozen section and my teach and her man were looking at some meat. Mom told me to go say hello. I didn't really want to but started that way. when I got close to them I heard my teach say "I'm tired of this shit!" to her man. I froze and then ran back to my mom. I thought my teacher must have been beamed up by aliens and had her brain sucked out and replaced with a alien brain because no teacher would ever cuss. They always said cussing was wrong! the next day I was very scared in school because I thought the alien brained teacher was going to recognize me from the grocery store and realize they had been found out. She never said anything to me though. I now think that she was too mad and focused on what she was telling her husband to have even realized I was in the store. Either that or embaressed I was there. It wasn't until I was older that I realized teachers aren't morally perfect people but just regular peeps who try to put on a good act around small children.
when i was a little girl my grandpa said if anyone touches you or picks me up to slap them or hit them.SO when i was in pre-k my teacher picked me up and said she is soooooo cute and i slapped he right across her face and i ran down the hallway untill some teachers caught me
I used to think that if a house had the same number as your classroom, the teacher lived there. In kindergarten my room number was 305. once we drove by a house with the same number and I thought my teacher lived there.
In kindergarden, I thought all my teachers had the name of the subject they taught. That meant my teachers being called Madame French, Ms. Art, Mr. Math...
Just last year (I was in 7th grade) my English teacher told me that she video taped all of her classes. I believed her, and was always super good in her class all year long. On awards day, I got the English award 'cause I was always on my best behavior in her class.
This how I imagine substitute teaching working:
The sick teacher would be lying in his/her bed like they were dying. The principle would be at their bedside. The teacher would say, "Please, have (insert name of substitute here) teach my class today" and then die or go to sleep or something
When I was in preschool, I once asked a teacher who was vacumning the carpet whether or not a small child like me could be sucked up by the vacumn machine. She, having either misheard me or having thought it was a stupid question, responded with a "yes."
For the next year or two, I would always leave the room when any vacumn was being used.
I used to beleive that when teachers went to the teachers lounge, it looked like a room with an old vending machine, and when the teachers were on break they'd lock teh door, and open a secret passage behind the vending machine that leads to a cafe, resort, and stuff like that
When I was a little kid my teacher said that she had eyes on the back of her head so i poked her head thinking that eyes would pop out and she would go blind she didnt and i was so embarrest same with my parnets
Until I got my kindergarden yearbook, I'd been convinced that teachers didn't have first names. Why else would you have to call them "Mrs." or "Mr."? Thank God that the yearbook listed the teachers' first names...
when i was in the 3rd or 4th, the girls bathrooms used to have these little boxes on the walls that were air freshners. well we thought that they were cameras and the teachers and principle would check on us to make sure we werent goffing off.
when i was in 2nd grade i used 2 believe that the last names of teachers were their first names. Like "Mishork" I was always wondering why teachers always had such weird names!
I thought all teachers in school were married to each other
