An autistic A-level student has been described as “thrilled” after finally being offered the temporary role as teacher of her sixth-form English class, sources have claimed.

Paige Thomas, 17, who has been teaching the class on an informal basis, owing to her teacher’s incompetence, called the promotion “long overdue.”

“I was just helping out as usual,” explained Thomas. “You know, correcting Mrs. Hoyland when she got facts about Sylvia Plath wrong, when I impressed her so much she offered me the job on the spot.”

“To be honest, I’m surprised she didn’t call on me sooner,” Thomas continued. “She can’t even pronounce Ariel properly. I just assumed I was overqualified.” 

Teacher Karen Hoyland, 49, said: “Get out of my class.”
