Teacher Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Teacher Dream Symbol – Teachers are symbols of learning, knowledge and repressed childhood tension. It is surprising how many real life teachers actually have disturbed thoughts about children. It would seem that being around children all day actually changes their psychology.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does impair their abilities to partake of society in a normalized way, because they carry with them preconceptions of people that they are unable to rid their selves of in order to think objectively about the world around them. If you dream about a teacher it could represent this very idea or you may have a memory about a teacher that you loved or cared for. Either way, it is your dream.

Additional Teacher Interpretations

Teachers in a dream represent your willingness in life to learn. This can be a subconscious message for your inner child. You may need help or advice about a situation you need deal with. This can be positive or negative depending on what else is going on in the dream. A teacher offers guidance to help others find their path in life.

Seeing an old teacher is positive for it can mean you will soon have beautiful new things. Abundance will cross your path. A teacher killed in a dream warns you may be overprotective of someone or something you know in your waking life. Are there things you are unwilling to share? Do you feel the need to protect yourself? This type of dream reminds there are things you should freely share. It shows the generosity of spirit.

A teacher punishing students in a dream can mean there will soon be sad news coming your way. It can also mean there are hard times ahead. Try to be prepared.
