Mensagem:  Senhor Ronaldo,

You say FAMILY IS whenever the noun or adjective that follows is singular.

Ex: My FAMILY IS in Assomada. My FAMILY is Jewish.

Similarly, whenever the noun or adjective that follows is Plural you say FAMILY ARE

EX: My whole FAMILY ARE Brazilians. My whole FAMILY ARE Northerners

Yes the way you did it first is right. Your teacher was wrong.
My Family is southerners-is plainly wrong.
