Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Bonjour! Salaam! ¡Hola! Ni Hau! Ciao! Namaste!

Like many students at NorthStar I had the opportunity to grow up overseas. Some of you speak more than one language already and want to join us to learn more. I hope to pass on my love of international languages and culture to each of my students here at NorthStar. Find out what languages we might have in common by watching the video!
