Contestant 1

I would love to have Rosé of Blackpink as my teacher. She has such a sweet voice and plays the guitar, too. I hope she can teach me how to sing and play the guitar.

Contestant 2

I wish football superstar Lionel Messi could be our life education teacher. I could easily ask him to give me football lessons, but that’s not what I really want. I want him to share some groundbreaking stories with me. Messi suffered from a growth hormone disorder and had to have treatment. He became one of the world’s greatest football players through hard work and determination. So he is the perfect role model who can teach me how to overcome life’s challenges.

Contestant 3

Rowan Atkinson, the actor of Mr. Bean, could teach us life planning lessons and also be our discipline master. Mr. Bean values discipline above all and can help the class become more mature. He is a child stuck in an adult’s body and would resonate well with children who watch his shows.•

Contestant 8

I would pick Nathan Fillion to teach me drama. I’ve always had great respect for him as an actor and I love drama. I especially like sci-fi, and he has done a lot of projects involving an imagined future. He would bring such a funny energy to drama and make us all laugh because that’s the way he is.

Contestant 9

My choice would be Angelina Jolie, because she is one of the best-known humanitarians among celebrities. She would be my social studies teacher due to her wonderful work involving human rights.

Contestant 10
