You are right. Your history teacher was wrong. "All that glitters is not gold" means that everything that glitters is not gold. Nothing that glitters is gold. If it glitters it isn't gold. "Not all that glitters is gold" means that some things that glitter are gold, but other things that glitter are not gold. If it glitters it may or may not be gold.
