What,s the difference between another and other?
Our school principal is a lady. When I introduce her which one should I use - Our Principal or Our Madam Principal or Our Principal Madam. (She is married)

Which one would you choose? I might choose the green one, but there are three other colours. So would you still choose the green one or would you prefer another one, either from the other colours you can see or some that are not shown? I don't know; perhaps I should see another one rather than choose from the others shown here.
The safest option is to say our Principal. However if you become aware that other people are referring to her as Madam Principal then use that, but not your last suggestion (which in some cultures refers to a completely different kind of person!).
