If you were a superhero, what would your powers be?

A good book and then form a book club with coconuts, a knife (basic survival) and a boat so I could get off the island once the coconuts started to annoy me.

My students. It’s very satisfying when you know your students enjoy dancing and learning something new from you each day.
