Principal for the Morning – Adriana

One of my favorite days of the year is “Principal for the Morning”.  This is my contribution to the PTO staff raffle.  This year’s winner was a confident and talented 2nd grade student.  “Principal Adriana” led Friday Flag Raising, walked the building with Head Custodian Astudillo, read aloud to Kindergarten, had a phone meeting with Superintendent Wegley, and called an all-school surprise recess.  The morning ended with a pizza lunch in the principal’s office with Adriana and 2 girlfriends.

I asked Principal Adriana a few questions about her morning:

Q:  What do you think is the hardest part of being a principal?

A:  It is really tiring.  You have to get up early and come to school early.  The hardest part for me was picking only 2 friends for lunch.  Everyone is so nice.  I had to pick out of a hat.

Q:  Were you nervous leading flag raising?

A:   Yes.  I didn’t have a lot of time to practice.  Some of the student names (that I read) were really hard (to pronounce).


Q:  What advice do you have for anyone who wants to become a school principal?

A:  One, don’t stay up late.  Get your sleep.  Two, practice student names for flag raising. 

Q:  What is best part of being Willowbrook Principal?

A:  Giving everyone extra recess time.
