Answer:

The principal said that the teacher is excellent, every student she teaches likes her.

Explanation:

TO switch the speech from direct to indirect, you have to use the words:
- said that: if the verb has no indirect object (the subject is not telling anyone).
- told (the object) me, him, etc: if the verb has a direct object.

In your example the principal was saying what he deduced and was not telling anyone, so we place the verb said followed with that:

The principal said that the teacher is excellent, every student she teaches likes her.
