Employee Spotlight Laura Johnson June 2024

SHSD loves to acknowledge the exceptional work of our staff, whose dedication creates caring and safe environments for our students. Each month, we will shine a spotlight on individual staff members who go above and beyond in their care for our students, families, and staff.

At this month's school board meeting, Cherrydale Primary School Office Coordinator Laura Johnson was recognized with a special message from outgoing Cherrydale Principal Ryan Douglas. Mr. Douglas shared, "As a first-year principal, Laura Johnson was my rock. That support has continued over the last eight years, and my debt of gratitude toward her cannot be overstated. She is a consummate professional—kind, caring, detail-oriented, and compassionate. You will not find a harder worker. Laura always wanted to be a teacher, but life got in the way and she never earned her credentials. Instead, as I’ve told her before, she skipped teaching and went right to assistant principal. Thank you, Laura. Professional and personally, I’ll forever be grateful."
