Dustin Vognild

My name is Dustin Vognild. I have worked at Whittier International Elementary since 2014. I have also lived in the Whittier neighborhood since I moved to Minnesota. My love for the Whittier neighborhood and community keeps me here. Whittier International is like no other school and I am thrilled to be a part of it. 


Education has always been a pillar in my life and I am ever seeking new ways to bring that experience to others. I received a BA in English and a BA in Philosophy at the University of Utah before I moved to Minneapolis. I have just received my ESL License and my Master’s Degree from The University of St. Thomas. The 2019-2020 school year will be my first year teaching as well as a new chapter in my life. I am excited to begin that chapter at Whittier. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, archery, kayaking, and skiing.
