Principal Eleanor Leads With Grace and Style

Eleanor Mastaitis served as Shaker Road Elementary School’s Principal-for-the-Day today, which meant that the building had a school leader who radiates kindness and style and grace.

“I love being a Shaker Road student,” said Ms. Mastaitis. “Being Principal-for-the-day was a lot of fun!”

Over the course of the day Ms. Mastaitis made sure that dozens of students knew that she caught them being good by handing out lots of “lucky coins.” 

The smiles on the faces of these students told the story…Principal Mastaitis has superior student recognition skills and knows how to build school spirit. She was a very upbeat presence all throughout the building.

By the end of the day, the every-other-day principal had learned many valuable lessons about leading with a smile, helping students to peacefully resolve issues and how to skip through the hallways. 

“Being principal today has been so much fun,” said Ms. Mastaitis.  “All you have to do is walk around, hand out lucky coins, visit with Humphrey the Hamster and smile to everyone you meet. I loved it!”
