  4. 4. + 9. Are the teachers who all the students want to join when they take their small groups... “Awwww, I want to go with Ms./Mr. ______! When do I get to go with Ms./Mr. ________! It’s not fair, I never get to go with Ms./Mr. ________!”
  5. 5. + 8. They have decorated their classrooms (or carts) with beautiful art from all around the world.

  9. 9. + 4. Never have to go to yoga class, because they are already so flexible.
  10. 10. + 3. Can swear in and/or understand inappropriate words and body parts in at least three languages other than English. #%@&! å&*$!
