Meet Cottage Hill Principal Shar Johns. Mrs. Johns began her tenure with the Pleasant Ridge School District in 2004 as the Vice Principal of Magnolia Intermediate School and served as the Principal of Alta Sierra Elementary from December 2009 until June 2012. Prior to joining the district, she taught for twelve years in the San Juan Unified School District in grades one through eight. As an experienced educator as well as proud mom and grandma, she has learned the importance of a positive, nurturing environment for children and is ever so appreciative of the staff and parents at Cottage Hill who work so diligently to create such a magical place for children to learn, grow and excel.
