Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Shauna Mingus


I love teaching from home because of the special opportunity to get to know my students around the world.

I can't wait to help you in your study of French, journalism, cooking, or science!


I have taught since 1998, focusing on French, English, ESL, and Science. I have taught in public and private schools in the United States, Canada, and overseas, in addition to teaching online courses for three different schools.

I have also authored online French curriculum that is used across the country.

I taught for NSA from 2005-2008, and have been with NSA again since 2016.
