Leadership Team

Kendra Hossfeld, Principal

I am a life-long learner with a background in curriculum and design, differentiated instruction, school management and educational leadership. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and completed my Master’s degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado. I I earned my K-12 Principal license from the Colorado Department of Education. I co-founded North Star Academy, a John Irwin School of Excellence, and Core Knowledge charter school in Parker, Colorado. As a co-founder of North Star Academy I have served as the school’s Curriculum Director, Dean of Middle School, and Assistant Principal. I believe that every child can reach their highest potential if they are challenged and engaged. Providing students with a solid education while teaching meaningful character traits results in high academic achievement and strong academic growth. Children inspire me and it is my pleasure to lead them in their education. I spend my free time exploring the outdoors with my family. 


Mary Clarke, Assistant Principal
NSA has been a home away from home for me, and there is nowhere else I’d rather be. I believe in what we do at North Star Academy to educate our children and look forward to our students’ growth each year.  I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Montana State University-Billings, a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Penn State, and a Graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership from Kaplan University. I love to learn and my goal has always been to pass my love of learning onto my students.  I look forward to working with our students each year to help them learn and grow to their fullest potential!
Kyle Roberts, Assistant Principal
I was born and raised in Colorado. I have a masters in administration from the University of Denver.  I worked for Aurora Public Schools before coming to North Star Academy in 2011 to teach middle school math.  It has been a wonderful experience to go from teacher to Assistant Principal at North Star.  My wife, Tiffany, is the Pre-K Director and Teacher. We have four children. 3 of whom attend NSA.  I am very excited for the new adventures this year will bring working with such a wonderful staff and student body.
