Southern Bluffs Elementary student becomes principal for the day

Heidi Hjaltadottir wants to be a teacher

A local fourth grader took charge of her school for the day!

Most days, 9-year-old Heidi is a Southern Bluffs Elementary school student, but Thursday she was the principal. Heidi won the opportunity to be ‘Principal for the Day’ at a school auction.

During her one day in power, Heidi led the morning announcements, visited classrooms, and met the school Superintendent.

“The funnest thing is probably like meeting with all the kids. I like to watch kids just come in smiling,” said Heidi Hjaltadottir.

Heidi says she would like to be a teacher when she grows up.
