Words 91-100

You are now on your way. 94. Obstreperous The unruly student will fit the picture. Before I began teaching in the south Bronx, I had seen students throw chairs, but not standing on their desks.

Pedantic One whose manner is like a teacher and not in a complimentary way. 98. Impeccable In tidiness, no other word quite fits 99. Gratuitous Remember the last situation in your life where something was better left not said? A gratuitous remark can make things markedly wore faster than ever imagined. 100. Indolent Our rebellious youth 101. Visualization
