Principles observe classrooms, teachers, and lessons so they can evaluate how things are going and provide constructive feedback if necessary.
If you’ve had a principal observing you and your lessons, it’s good etiquette to thank them afterward no matter what the feedback.
Here are examples of a thank you letter to principal for observation you can use or tweak to suit your individual circumstances:
