"The kids get a kick out of it because they get to pie the principal in the face and usually there’s a stigma or a fear of coming to the principal’s office but I want to build those community relationships with parents and teachers and students and let them know that I’m an approachable guy and I like to have fun and school can be fun and building a positive school culture is one of the foundations to instructional growth."
