Sara Sheridan - Principal of Portola High School

Sara SheridanI spent most of my childhood in the Sierra Valley, living in Calpine and attending Sierraville Elementay and Loyalton schools.  After graduating from Loyalton High School in 1996, I attended Chico State and Feather River College before settling in at the University of Nevada, Reno where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education and teaching credential.  I was very fortunate to begin my teaching career at Portola High School in the Fall of 2004.  After teaching a variety of subjects, I moved into the vice principal role in 2009.  Three years later, in 2012, I made the jump into the principal position and am thrilled to now be moving into my 14th year at PHS.


I live in Clio with my husband Dan, who I have been married to for 21 years.  We have four children - Erin - 20, Emily - 16, Mary - 14, and Connor - 10.
