    Hi,

    There is a job that I would be perfect for and I want to see if there is a way to circumvent HR by sending an email to the principal directly with my resume. I will fill out all the relevant details on TalentEd but it seems like going on there is sending something into a deep abyss that nothing comes out of. The best way of letting the principal know I would be perfect for the job, I believe, would be to email them directly. However, I do not want to do if it's just considered the wrong thing to do or totally worthless.

    Email the principal.

    I would only say that principals that I have known, and I know several, have all claimed that such attempts to circumvent the hiring system are generally ignored, often found very annoying, leaving a bad taste in their mouths. I think sending your resume and letter of interest to the HR department of the school or district, while submitting your application as originally directed is less of a turn off.

    I don't think the principal will read your resume. Ask someone who knows the principal to help you and you will improve your abilities

    I don't think this is a good approach. You want to apply to be a teacher at the school, not get into sales to spam the principal with emails. Besides, a personal conversation would still be better.
