Assistant Principal - Norman Bell
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Norman Bell
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Norman Bell and I am super excited to start my 2nd year as Assistant Principal at L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion Elementary School. I look forward to supporting all staff, students, and families during Distance Learning 2.0 and when we return to an in-person learning model.
I have worked in Saint Paul Public Schools for the past nine years in a variety of roles: Cultural Specialist, PBIS Specialist, Licensed School Counselor, Administrative Intern, and Assistant Principal.
I support the language immersion approach because studies show that bilingual education provides students with unique opportunities to experience learning and growth at 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 families and community members as we support our students' success.
