My son thought summers were granted to us so that the younger teachers could be taught by older teachers. Thus, they'd be ready to teach their students by the time school started again.
i thought teacher were robots until one of them brought in there husbands and also another had a baby and found out were they lived so :( teachers are people just like us
When i was in thrid grade we used to sing a song called "John Jacob Jingle Himer Shmit" (Im assuming u all know where this ones going).....well, honestly i thought the song went "John Jacob Jingle Himer sh*t", so thats how i sung it and one time my teacher heard me and i got in trouble, A LOT of trouble she called in my dad...eeek!... but anyway, how was i supposed to know, i sang it like that for almost the whole year and no one said a thing.
I used to believe that teachers could make up their own name when they became teachers, I didn't realize it was their last name. I thought they could just pick one. Such as Ms. Smith.....
When i was in primary school, i used to belive that the teachers were robots, and were turned off and locked in the cupbord when the wern't used!
My little brother, when he was in 1st Grade, used to believe that his Principal had a bed of nails and he would make the bad kids lie on it. I think his idea might have come from the fact that the principal's name was Mr. Screws. He came home one day because he got into trouble at school and was terrified that the principal would come get him and make him use the bed. (We lived across the street from the main entrance which didn't help matters)
My classmates thought Janitors were just hobos the School(s) hired. Some of 'em still think that, And I'm in 8th grade!
I used to believe, and I still slightly suspect, that teachers made up everything they taught. They'd made up all the history stories, sums etc. and if you went to any other school, you'd be taught completely different things. I was amazed when my friend from another school knew about Henry VIII, and thought it was an amazing coinidence!
When I was younger I thought that teachers got to make up their names. A socialworker's name was ms.fair, so I decided when I was older I wanted to be a science teacher named ms.science.
I used to believe that teachers never went to the bathroom. I believed this until I saw one walk to the bathroom.
when i was in kindergarten, i used to believed the teachers in school would set cameras in the kids' houses and spied on them. so everytime i got scolded by my parents, i would feel embarrassed to go to school because i thought the teachers would going to tell all the kids in school.
I used to think that the teachers storage room was actually their bedroom and when all the pupils left they would sleep in there. I thought that was why the teachers were always at school so early and we were never allowed in their storage rooms.
I used to believe that teachers, along with parents, and people in office were a different species. I also thought that dogs were the same species as kids. I held that belief until I was 10. Strangely enough, I was a straight A student.
When i was little i used to believe teachers couldn't have a normal live and couldn't be mums and dads. Even in secondary school i had this belief. Then i started going out with a boy and to my horror found out his mother was my teacher when she walked in on me in his toilet. ooops
I thought teachers were only ever at school and all they did was teach, not even eat! Lo and behold one day my mom dressed me up and took me to church and to my shock my teacher was getting married and there were other teachers also at the wedding. I still dont know how they escaped from the school and the shock of the event still hasnt worn off... I wont even mention that I DO kiss....
I remember when I was in 1st grade we had a substitute teacher who informed the entire class in all seriousness that she had eyes in the back of her head. Not only that but EVERY teacher had eyes in the back of their head. As she walked around the room I remember despertaly trying to see her eye balls on the back and all I could see was hair. I figured if I couldn't see her eye balls then they couldn't see me.
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.
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 in lower school a Teacher had just returnd from his trip/holiday to india we were told that the class was goin to see some slides he had brought back.being 7 i thought they ment the type of slide you played on i had imagend sum really wacky slides. i felt very let down when i found out they were just photo slides.
I used to believe teachers were slaves to the school, and once school was done, the book shelfs would lift up, and beds, lights, couches, and other things awaited them, than in the morning they woke up and walked in.
