My guest blogger today is Alecia, a sixth grade student at our school who entered a raffle drawing to win the prize of Principal for the Day…. and what a fantastic prize it turned out to be, not just for Alecia, but for me. 🙂 Alecia has been a strong presence in our building today, observing classrooms, interacting with students, completing fun tasks like student birthday cards and helping me prepare for our Students Rebuild paper crane project for Japan, as well as serving as photographer for our 10-Picture Tour!
Here are Alecia’s photos, with descriptions of why she chose to showcase these areas of our school, as well as some reflections about what it’s like to be a principal! Thanks for a great day, Alecia!
Alecia ~ what did you enjoy about your day as a principal? What did you learn? What advice do you have for anyone who wishes to become a principal?
I enjoyed being a principal. It is really fun just to go around and see what other kids are working on and just to be able to be in charge of the school is really cool! Some advice I have for people who want to be a principal is just to be understanding with children and have fun!

Great job Alecia!!! It was pretty amazing that you had this opportunity. I am a principal in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada and it is amazing to see another school. I really appreciate you sharing the pictures with everyone. I have a question though…what do you think the best part of being a principal is?
What a great day Alecia!! I teach sixth grade in Berks County, PA. My students would LOVE to win a day as principal. You have a beautiful building and a kind leader with which to share it. What do you think is the hardest part about being a principal? Thank you for sharing your experience!!! 🙂
Great idea. I’ll borrow it too!
