Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Kristi Velasquez


I have been teaching and coaching for 18 years. Currently, I’m teaching Theology in Real Life and NorthStar’s brand new Pre-Professional Portfolio course.

One of the things I love about NSA is our teenagers. Teenagers are my favorite people and NSA is not like any other school because we are so diverse in our cultures but united in our values like: kindness, curiosity and authenticity. I think we need all of those things to learn, so I look forward to meeting you and experiencing those things with you and your family.
