Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jeff Rutledge
I am very excited to be joining the Independence staff as a Social Sciences teacher, where I will be teaching 9th grade Pre-AP World History I/Geography and 11th grade academic U.S. History. This year will be my 24th year teaching in Loudoun County and 25th in education. Before coming to Independence, I taught at Willard Intermediate School, Mercer Middle School, Farmwell Station Middle School, and as a Special Education Paraprofessional at George Mason Middle School. In addition to teaching at Indy, I also serve as the Varsity Boys Head Lacrosse coach. I earned my PreK-12 Educational Adminstration & Leadership certificate from George Washington University, and a M.Ed. and B.S. degrees from Old Dominion University.
