About Me

I am honored to serve the North Star community as North Star’s fourth principal. 

Throughout my years in education, I have had the privilege to work as a child advocate, teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I have learned something new in each opportunity I was given, and I look forward to learning and growing in order to help all students. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English teaching from the University of Utah and later received a master’s degree in educational leadership from Brigham Young University. Even though I attended two great universities in Utah, I will forever be a Texas Longhorn fan (my home state).  

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. I have a passion for reading and writing, especially poetry, and I enjoy watching most sports. I truly enjoy cooking and love to learn new techniques and cuisine that are unfamiliar to me (my favorites are Italian and Mexican, and I’m trying to learn Indian).

If you enjoy being connected through social media, I invite you to visit the North Star Facebook page, which links to the North Star Twitter account. You can also follow me @nateelkinsSLCSD to see some of the many great things happening at North Star.
