Certainly do not put your teacher on a pedestal; this is a particularly difficult pitfall to avoid when one is so new to playing and is easily impressed. challenge your instructors and question them when you are unsure about something. If you suspect they are full of b.s. then they probably are. Give your sense of intuition some credit, for its all you really have to go by at this stage.
Also, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of correct posture and hand and guitar positioning. USE A MIRROR. Get good habits ingrained early on so that you won't get injured or have them limit your progress later.
