I want to be able to loop through my arraylist and determine which class it came from. I want to use that value for things further.

public class test extends JFrame{
    int [] people ;

    public test(){
	  Person [] people = new Person[4];
	  float grades[] = {90,90,91,92,92,93,93,94,94,95,96,96,95,95,95};
          ArrayList<Person> list = new ArrayList<Person>(4);
	  list.add(new Teacher("Teacher ", "One", 420));
	  list.add(new Student("Student ", "One", 11111, grades));
          list.add(new Teacher("Teacher ", "Two", 421));
	  list.add(new Student("Student ", "Two", 22222, grades));
          setLayout(new GridLayout(4, 2, 5, 5));
          for (int i=0; i< list.size(); ++i){
              add(new JTextField("" + list.get(i)), BorderLayout.WEST);

      public static void main(String[] args){
      test frame = new test(); 
      frame.setSize(400, 400);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE); //allow x to exit
