Growing up when we school kids, the Principal was someone we were scared of and didn't want to see because if you had to see them, the news was probably not good. The Principal was seen as the "sheriff" of the school but in reality, they are so much more and the older you get, the more you understand the work they have to do and for that, we need to show our appreciation.

The kids are back in school and so far so good here in East Texas, nothing wild or crazy to report from our area so the Tyler ISD is having fun on social media with something special in honor of National Principals Month.

Throughout the month of October, Tyler ISD has been posting baby photos of all the principals in the district and they have been asking students, parents and faculty to do their best in trying to figure out who the principals are based on their baby photos.

Tyler ISD is also asking folks who take a guess to express their appreciation for the work these principals do using the hashtag #ThankAPrincipal. We're joining in on the fun and appreciation by showing these photos and asking you to take a guess! We'll help with a little hint on some of them.
