    Exclamation Help On Java Homework (DUE TONIGHT!!!)

    Problem: (The Person, Sruden, Employee, Faculty, and Staff classes) Design a class named Person and its two subclasses named Student and Employee. Make Faculty and Staff subclasses of Employee. A person has a name, address, phone number, and email address. A student has a class status (freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior). Define the status as a constant. An employee has an office, salary, date hired. Define a class named MyDate that contains the fields year, month, and day. A faculty member has office hours and a rank. A staff member has a title. Overridde the toString method in each class to display the class name and the person's name.
    Draw the UML diagram for classes. Implement the classes. Write a tes program that creates a Person, Student, Employee, Faculty, and Staff, and invokes their toString() methods

    I am having trouble overriding the toString method in each class, Can any one give me any clarfication? (And If you see any other problems i might have, please help, thanks) And am I using the Superclass correctly?

    public class Person {
     
        private String name, address, phone, email;
     
        public Person(){
        }
     
        public Person(String name, String address, String phone, String email){
            this.name = name;
            this.address = address;
            this.phone = phone;
            this.email = email;
        }
     
        public String getName(){
            return name;
        }
     
        public void setName(String name){
            this.name = name;
        }
     
         public String getAddress(){
            return address;
        }
     
        public void setAddress(String address){
            this.address = address;
        }
     
        public String getPhone(){
            return phone;
        }
     
        public void setPhone(String phone){
            this.phone = phone;
        }
     
        public String getEmail(){
            return phone;
        }
     
        public void setEmail(String email){
            this.email = email;
        }
     
        @Override
        public String toString(){
            return getClass().getName() + "\n" + name;
        }
    }

    public class Student extends Person{
     
        private final String CLASS_STATUS;
     
        public Student(String name, String address, String phone, String email,String CLASS_STATUS){
            super(name, address, phone, email);
            this.CLASS_STATUS =CLASS_STATUS;
        }
     
        public String getClassStatus(){
            return CLASS_STATUS;
        }
    }
