Hello! My name is Mindy Lorimor. This is my first (official) year as a P.E. teacher in BPS. I am teaching at Will-Moore and Liberty Elementary.
I graduated from Minot State in 2016 and moved to Arizona where I taught for a year in Mesa. After a year, life landed me back in the great state of North Dakota. Last year, I subbed from August until February for Pam Ihmels and started to familiarize myself within the district. I then interviewed for the open positions and landed at Will-Moore as the full time P.E. teacher! I’m so excited to start getting more involved in every way possible!
I have been in the education field for over 30 yrs, as a paraprofessional at the high school for one year and the remainder as an elementary physical education teacher. I have also coached from the youth to the collegiate level. Also a former head coach in the Bismarck Public School system. I have previously served on the NDHSAA advisory committee and also on the NDSHAPE board.
Hello! My name is Carrie Christensen I am currently a Physical Education teacher at Century High School in Bismarck, ND. I teach 9th and 10th grade PE classes. This is my first full time job within the district, I previously had a few long term substitute positions at Simle Middle School. I graduated from the University of Mary in 2016 majoring in physical education and athletic training. I am very passionate about physical education and find any opportunity I can to get involved. I was a student board member throughout college, and am actively involved in the NDSHAPE conference each year. I look forward to expanding my knowledge and getting more involved in this awesome profession!
My name is Josh Tripp and I have been in the education and P.E. field for 8 years and I have been a coach for football, track, tennis, basketball, as well as implementing a disc golf program and hosting the first school versus school disc golf tournament in the state of Arkansas. I have been in P.E. Programs in different states and have had been fortunate to work with some very dedicated professionals in the Health and P.E. field. I have a passion to get all students to find what makes them happy and allows them to grow in a healthy and positive way. Since I work in corrections I understand that a person’s health is truly all they can control. If I can help students to be informed in the different ways to be healthy or deal with stress in a positive way then I feel like I could really make a difference for the future of our society.
