Mr. Norman Bell



My Name is Norman Bell.  This is my first year as Assistant Principal at L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion Elementary School.  I am very excited for the opportunity to work with the students, staff, families and community partners at L'Etoile du Nord.

I have worked in Saint Paul Public Schools for the past eight years in a variety of roles: Cultural Specialist, PBIS Specialist, Licensed School Counselor and Administrative Intern.

I support the language immersion approach because studies show that bilingual education provides students with unique opportunities to experience learning and growth in multiple levels. As they develop their language proficiency skills, students also grow in their ability to communicate with and understand the different cultures and world perspectives around us.

During my free time I enjoy working out, fishing and learning. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in educational leadership.  I believe in the importance of encouraging learning for all, including myself.  I look forward to growing and learning alongside our students and staff at L'Etoile du Nord French Immersion.

Feel free to contact me at any time via email or phone with any concerns you may have.  It is my goal to work in collaboration with you as we support our students' success.
