In English the post of a principal in a school is called a headteacher as this could be either a man or a woman. How would one term a female head teacher in Spanish?

la directora But not all titles/occupations have two genders like this one does. Many you 'just gotta learn.'

'head teacher' always confused me. We had several head teachers and a principal in my school, but when I read British novels, the principal was so often referred to as 'headteacher'. English! Ay!

In my region and variety of English there is no ¨head teacher.¨ There is ¨principal,¨ ¨vice principal,¨ ¨teacher,¨ but no ¨head teacher.¨

I just had a set in which 7 of the 10 questions revolved around 'el director'! Duolingo really has to work on its algorithm...
