10 Myths About Teachers

1. Teachers Live at School

2. Teachers are Just Another Brick in the Wall

3. Teachers Hate Students

4. Teachers Don't Know What They're Talking About

5. Teachers Can't Do Anything Else

6. Teachers Are Opposed to Homeschooling

8. Teachers Like to Give Failing Grades

9. Everything is the Teacher's Fault

10. Teachers Are Overworked and Underpaid


  1. Lol, fantastic list. I specially like the 9th one! Have lost track of the number of times I've heard my school teacher aunt make the same lament. This goes on our twitter today!

  2. Shalvika, Thanks so much. One time I even had a parent blame me because her daughter had forged the mother's signature on a progress report. I never could figure that out.

  3. Oh no! What did she think that you are teaching them to 'copy' signatures!! Such parents give a bad message to their children. They teach them to blame other people for their own shortcomings.

  4. Thank goodness most parents are caring and loving parents who have the best interests of their children at heart. I have run into a few that annoyed me tremendously, but amazingly, their children turn into pretty likable, well-adjusted adults.
