2 staff members depart school

September 24, 2019 — by Harshini Velchamy and Tiffany Wang

Two beloved staff members are leaving the school this month — one for retirement and other as she follows her husband to his new job. 

Jeanine Sevilla spent her last day as one of the school’s two campus supervisors on Sept. 17, a job she has held for the past 15 years. She was known for her friendly interactions with students around campus.

As of Sept. 19, guidance administrative assistant Sarah Christeson departed from the school after working here for two years.

Christeson, who will be relocating to Orange County, where her husband has found new work, specialized in helping students find college and career opportunities. She also plans the PSAT testing, AP testing and SBAC testing dates for sophomores and juniors.

Christeson is planning on returning to her roots in elementary school education and teaching in Irvine. “It’s sad to leave Saratoga High,” Christeson said, “but I look forward to the new school atmosphere, especially being with a different age group.” 

Kathryn Sheridan, who worked at Santa Teresa High School as a support services technician, will be replacing Christenson. Sheridan will assume the role of scheduling and planning for testing, college and career activities.

Helen Jarrett, a substitute teacher in the district, is going to be replacing Sevilla as the new campus supervisor. She is the mother of senior Alena Jarrett.
