Mr. Alex Johnson

I would like to take this opportunity and welcome you back to the 2022-2023 school year. I am excited to be returning to my alma mater (Class of 2004) and look forward to being part of a great staff and to working with outstanding students. 

As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world”. No matter the circumstances of any child, they have an opportunity at Sherrard to become successful and be prepared for the next stages of their life. I will work with your student to reach his or her overall goals and his or her highest potential.

As the Assistant Principal, it is my goal to ensure that your student has a safe environment to learn each and every day. In addition, we want our students to achieve success both in and out of the classroom. Please reach out if there is anything I can do to assist your student in his or her success within the Sherrard School District.
