A student of Abia State University has narrated the unique way he handled a sassy student who tried to be smart with him during his class.

Chris Ifeanyi, who took up teaching to pass time as the ASUU strike continues, said he asked a question in class and one of his students gave a sarcastic reply. Other students expected him to punish the girl and waited with trepidation but he had other thoughts.

I volunteered to teach some secondary school students literature while ASUU thinks its my destiny they are .ing with. A bell went off and since I am not yet familiar with their bell signals, I asked the class if that bell was for going home.

One girl answered with side talk “No sir it’s for assembly”

I heard her, the class heard her too and took to that hushing silence of trepidation as per someone has spoken out of turn and should expect the worst ? ? ?

“Class, do you all realise what she just did?”

“She just insulted you”

“Oh no, she gave us an example in figures of speech, Sarcasm. And for a topic we have not yet broached Emmanuella has dis.ed excellent wisdom hence, she’d be leading the discussion in our next class which would be figures of speech” I changed scheme of work ? ? ?

“I’m sorry Mr Chris, I was just .ing”

“it’s alright my dear, the best way to learn is by .ing”

You will die on top of question tomorrow, you think you can talk anyhow
