New Changes at VLS

First, for those that haven’t heard some of our great news!  At the beginning of July we hired our new 3rd and 4th grade teacher, Ms. Whitney Rutland. Here’s a friendly introduction from Ms. Rutland herself!

Hello, my name is Whitney Rutland. I am a graduate from Vanguard University (2010) and completed my teaching credential from Cal Lutheran (2012). For the last four years I taught abroad in Bangkok, Thailand where I served as the lead teacher for a 2nd Grade classroom in a bilingual private school.  I am passionate about engaging students in all subjects and helping each student meet their individual goals.  In my free time I volunteer with the worship team and help with the youth group at my church in Moorpark, CA .  I also love to travel and explore new cultures. I am looking forward to a great school year. I am excited to be a part of the Venice Lutheran School family!

In addition to Ms. Rutland joining our staff, Mr. Camargo and Mrs. Rehrer have taken over the rolls of principal and vice principal. We’re excited for the 2017-2018 school year with our theme “Striving for Excellence!” Mr. Camargo and Mrs. Rehrer are committed to leading our school as we all strive for the excellence of Christ!
