Do you ever feel like one of a kind? Then maybe you are peerless, a word for someone (or something) unique, excellent, and superior.

Peerless is a variation of peer — a word for folks in the same boat as you, or at least the same class. A teacher's peers are other teachers, but if she's a much better teacher than anyone, you could call her a peerless teacher.
