Mrs. Rebekah Gerlach
Proud Principal
John H. Shary Elementary

Dear Parents,


I am honored to serve the John H. Shary community as your principal.  I have worked in education for 17 years, six of those in Sharyland ISD.  My roles have included being a teacher, a dean of instruction, a campus administrator, and as a district administrator, I have worked closely with amazing educators and parents all across our great district.  Having worked at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels, I understand the challenges presented at each level, and what is needed to be successful.


At JHS, we are passionate about the work we do, and we are committed to excellence.  Each day is an opportunity to help your child grow, and achieve, and together with your support, we aim to do just that.


Our mission statement this year is “What Starts Here Changes the World.”  In coordination with our parents and community, our goal is to provide a quality education in a child-centered environment that promotes creativity, critical thinking, and encourages life-long learning. 


I am very excited to meet all our JHS students and families this year.  Together, we will work to provide encouragement and support, so that each student is successful and excels. 


Excited for a great year!

Mrs. R. Gerlach
