Zahra, Casa Head Teacher in the Cypress Room, is entering her second year at North Star Montessori.

After the North Star summer camp program, my friends and I drove to Portland, Oregon to enjoy the city, culture and tax-free shopping! We spent some time at beautiful Cannon Beach and Seaside too.  I took another short but sweet trip by ferry to Salt Springs Island. I enjoyed their lamb roast, fine wines, lavender farm, local shopping and time at the beach. I fell in love with this charming and quaint island. It was a very relaxing and inspiring experience.

In addition, this summer I enjoyed BC’s natural beauty spending time in Whistler, rafting in Squamish, swimming at local lakes and family picnics at the park. I also spent time painting and writing regularly.  My summer was one of tremendous fun, exciting adventures, balance and time for personal reflection time. This will be my second year at North Star Montessori and I’m excited to work with the children again.












Fahra, Assistant in the Cypress Room, has been part of the North Star community for the past 10 years.

This summer was filled with family, friends and a lot of fun!
We took our 12 year old son and his buddy to Great Wolf Lodge to enjoy three
fun filled days of water slides and wave pools.
After drying off, we spent the most of sun filled summer days biking and
hiking in our beautiful local trails.
To end the summer fun, we spend 4 nights up in Whistler watching the amazing
bikers at Crankworks and enjoying the natural beauty of BC in our room with
a view….
I am looking forward to another great year teaching at North Star and seeing
familiar faces and getting to know new ones!
