Salma Hussein is the first female Somali principal in her district and believed to be the first in the state. It's lunch time at Gideon Pond Elementary in Burnsville and Principal Hussein is laughing, smiling and assisting her K4-5th grade students. 'I was nervous and what made it amazing was just connecting with the students,' said Hussein.
