Beverly Hills Unified School District welcomed its newest addition on Aug. 10 when the Board of Education approved the appointment of Beverly Vista Middle School Assistant Principal, Joe Little.
“I am honored and grateful to become the new Assistant Principal at Beverly Vista Middle School,” Little said in a statement. “This district has been a leader of what quality education looks like for students for a very long time and I cannot wait to support and help grow that legacy at BVMS. I am excited to meet everybody that is a part of the great community at Beverly Vista Middle School.”
Little comes to Beverly Vista with a decade of experience. He previously worked at Animo Westside Middle School, a charter school in the Green Dot Public Schools network, where he taught as a history teacher and spent five years as an Assistant Principal.
“Mr. Little is an experienced middle school administrator who has impressive knowledge in the field of special education,” BHUSD Superintendent Dr. Michael Bregy said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming him to the BVMS and wider BHUSD community.”
Before beginning his career in education, Little received a Masters of Arts in Education and Administration Credential from Loyola Marymount University and his Bachelor of Art in History and Teaching Credential from California State University Long Beach. Outside of his work in school, Little spends most of his time with his family, which includes a 2-year-old son, a dog Lucy, and wife Casie. Little will hit the ground running, starting in the new role on Aug. 16.
