Bethany Walker

Curriculum Director & Teacher

My name is Bethany Walker. I count it an honor to work with author-teachers and an amazing group of curriculum developers to create authentic courses built on the foundation of a biblical worldview for NorthStar Academy.

I come to NorthStar with a global perspective having lived and taught overseas for 11 years and in public schools in the United States for 10 years. I love working with students, families, and teachers who are around the world and am excited to be in partnership with NorthStar in serving students.
