Jill Godtland, Principal
I am a native Californian growing up predominantly in the Bay Area. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts from Mills College in Economics and Communications. After working as a financial planner for a few years, I decided to pursue my teaching credential and obtain my Masters of Science in Education.
I began my teaching career as a lead teacher for a charter school in Stockton. In January of 2005, my family and I moved to Apple Valley, MN. I was the Director/Superintendent of a k-8 charter school that utilized the Core Knowledge sequence and the Classical Education model. After six plus years in Minnesota, my husband was transferred back to Northern California where I worked as the Director of Education for the Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT). We provided Common Core implementation training for districts in Sacramento County, as well as professional development on Hands-On Learning strategies. My true passion lies in unlocking student potential. I am an extremely dedicated, passionate, and innovative administrator that is committed to building strong relationships between students, staff, parents, and the community.
Sheri Baldridge, Secretary
Hi, my name is Sheri Baldridge and I’m the Secretary here at Harvest Ridge Placer Academy! I was born and raised in the Bay Area in Martinez, CA. I received my BS in Business Management in 2005 from The University of Phoenix. My husband is a high school Spanish teacher and together we have four children. We like to play board games, bake, go camping, swimming and enjoy the outdoors together. I LOVE working with and being around children! In my early 20′s I was a preschool teacher for five years and I had a blast teaching, baking and laughing with the children. For the past four years I processed Accounts Payable/Receivable for an engineering firm and before that I worked for Wells Fargo Bank for eight years. I’m really excited and happy to be surrounded by children all day again!
Tasha Raddigan, Registrar
Hi, my name is Tasha Raddigan. I was born and raised right here in Placer County where I attended Loomis Grammar School as a child and later moved to Lincoln during my high school years. I met my husband, Jared when I was 19 and we have been together ever since. We have 2 wonderful children, who both attend Placer Academy. After getting married and having our first child I decided to go back to school. I graduated from CSU Sacramento with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2008, believing I would continue on and get my teaching credentials. However life took a different direction and I decided to become a stay at home mom for my 2 children. Now I get the best of both worlds, I get to work and be with them. :) Working closely with the staff here at Placer Academy for the past few years has been a great experience and I am very fortunate to continue working with them.
