Principals, you’re the heart and soul of your school. How you treat students, teachers, parents and staff sets the tone for how everyone treats each other. The way you promote and talk about your school is how the rest of the community will perceive it. So be a morale booster! When you’re willing to let your guard down and get into the trenches—we’re talking classroom, cafeteria, library, and even the playground—you’re saying that your school is a safe haven where everyone has permission to be themselves.
We’re paying homage to the principals out there who have no qualms about dressing in costume or getting all dirty to boost school morale. The ones who pitch in, play ball, and cheer students/parents/teachers on. Here are 22 of the most heartwarming photos of principals that we could find. Feel and be inspired by their love and encouragement—and more so, take a moment to smile and see yourself in these!
