to the boy’s parents:
Primary 6: Mrs Jump Around (Never Knew Her name, never asked): so the apari (bald) boy is your child. Just give him all your novels to occupy him, he will be quiet.
Primary 5: (School 1) Mr Napoleon: He is brilliant but very troublesome. Very disruptive a boy. How does his mother cope with him at home? Thank God he has the brain to make up for things.
Primary 5: (School 2) Mrs Spy (Not real name): He is a devil o. He is always asking everybody to fight him. Don’t be deceived by his brain and gentle look o.
Primary 5: (School 3) He is never tired. He always assembled the boys together during long break, and he would ask them to chase him throughout. They never caught him!
Primary 4: Mrs Eyes Kongba (Not real name): I don’t care if he is brilliant or not, I don’t want to hear him talk or ask questions in my class again. Just warn your child to shut up in my class. If not, there will be trouble.
Primary 3: Mrs Afolabi: Give him varying tasks to do. Don’t worry if he doesn’t listen. He will ask you questions if he needs your help.
Primary 3: Student Teacher: I would love to have him in my Class, but he doesn’t want to come again. He said French is a chicken language, and he only wants to speak lion’s language. And that is the only subject I can teach.
Primary 2: (One Term) My Grand Aunty: It was a familiar affair. Just give him something enough to write all the time.
Primary 1: (Three Weeks) Mrs Owolabi: He has been fighting and arguing with me since just because I corrected him that his dad is a civil servant. He insisted his dad is a mechanic. I don’t want him in my class again.
Sorry to all the teachers that never understood this boy. He indeed provoked you a lot. And kudos to the few that knew how to engage him.
Happy Teacher’s Day.
