This paper provides examples of how a teacher and a principal construct their ethical selves. In doing so we demonstrate how Foucault's four-part ethical framework can be a scaffold with which to actively connect emotions to a personal ethical position. We argue that ethical work is and should be an ongoing and dynamic life long process rather than a more rigid adherence to a code of ethics that may not meaningfully engage its adherents. We use Foucault's four-part framework of ethical practice as a framework through which an ethical self can be purposely constructed. This is important work, as those who have authority over others must know how to monitor themselves against the misuse of the power of their positions.
