Dean of Students
I am the main point of contact for all issues related to students and families at NorthStar Academy. If you need help with anything academic and your teacher is not able to help, contact me.
I help families with course schedules, setting up good work habits, school pacing, and discipline issues. My role is similar to a Principal, but I work primarily with students and families instead of teachers.
In addition to that, I also work with our bookstore at BNC K-12 to make sure that resources are up to date. Please contact BNC K-12 if you have any issues with resources purchased through them. If they are not able to help, contact me.
One additional thing I do is welcome families to NSA. I love meeting with new families, welcoming them to NSA, and giving them some tips for success with online school. I’d love to talk with you also if you are new to NSA.
Student Success Coach
I am here to guide you through getting started with NorthStar Academy. I will be the “teacher” in your orientation course. I will grade your orientation assignments and give you feedback so you can learn how to submit assignments, where to look for answers to things you don’t understand, and how to use technology to your benefit.
Another way the Student Success Coach can help is to provide some extra accountability. I can meet with you to help you figure out a plan to successfully complete your courses with NorthStar. The wonderful thing about NSA is the flexibility that comes with our courses. However, sometimes students find themselves needing some guidance with how to structure their days or weeks to complete their course work in the most efficient manner.
The most important thing to realize is that as the Student Success Coach, I am here to encourage you, to be your cheerleader, and to support you. I am so glad that you are a student (or considering becoming one) at NorthStar Academy. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you as you pursue your education through NSA.
