What is it with this writer and flying kindergarten teachers?

My kindergarten teacher would have yelled at me had I refer to her in 2nd person! I'm saying this because Egy óvónő van és odarepül a tetőre, rendben? is not accepted.

Sorry, I'm not native and all, but I think what you said in "Egy óvónő van" is actually "There is a kindergarten teacher". "You are a kindergarten teacher" in formal speech would be "Ön óvónő", omitting the "van". Like the fourth line of this joke:

A pincér udvariasan megkérdi a vendéget: - Hogy ízlik a sült, uram? - Mint szakértő mondom, remek darab. - Ön szakács? - Nem, cipész vagyok!
