Evelyn Galstad, or Eddy as she is known to many, is a Norwegian language instructor at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Her interest in Norwegian language and culture started young, beginning with her family ties to Norway, and then deepened as she started attending Skogfjorden, the Norwegian village at Concordia Language Villages in Bemidji, Minnesota. Eddy has taught Norwegian at Skogfjorden for the past several years and has led their online presence for the last two years. Eddy’s joy for teaching Norwegian is infectious, and she has been involved in youth and family programming, language courses, and much more through Vesterheim Folk Art School. She received her B.A. in Vocal Performance and Nordic Studies from Luther College.
