The Life of a Principal

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a principal? Get a rare glimpse into #APrincipalsDay

Education Week is asking principals who use Twitter and the photo-sharing service Instagram to post photos throughout the day on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, that capture the moments that represent their daily lives as school leaders. We ask that principals use the hashtag#APrincipalsDay.

Our aim is to gather a wide variety of images from school leaders in remote, rural, suburban, urban, and even international settings to show the differences and similarities that principals share in their demanding, yet rewarding jobs.

Education Week will curate the images and assemble them into a photo gallery to showcase the fascinating and multi-faceted dimensions of the principals’ job. Learn how to participate.

Check back later this month for an Education Week special report on principals.
