Las Virgenes Unified School District (LVUSD) has announced the hiring of David Jackson and Janine Jellander as assistant principals at Agoura High School, and the appointment of Teresa Shiner as the district’s director of classified personnel.
Jackson has more than 20 years of service in public education. Before moving on to administrative positions, he was a teacher at both the high school and college levels. Jackson served as an assistant principal at the junior high and later high school level in the Burbank area and also served as principal at Royal High School in Simi Valley.
Jellander, who was raised in Thousand Oaks, is working toward her educational doctorate after having earned a bachelor’s degree in history at USC followed by a master’s of science degree in education and a California teaching credential, also at USC.
She most recently taught at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach and was selected, during her first year of teaching, as California’s First Class Teacher of the Year and represented California in a teacher symposium in Washington, D.C.
Shiner, a Thousand Oaks resident, has been involved in the field of personnel and human resources within a public education system for about 10 years.
Most recently she served as coordinator of personnel and payroll services for the Castaic Union School District.
