About Me

My name is Ben Thompson, and I am a student, coach, and reporter for The Mystician. I am currently a student at Bismarck State College, and have been accepted into the Mathematics program at Dickinson State University to pursue a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.

I graduated from Center-Stanton High School in the Spring of 2020, and was enrolled in Bismarck State College in the Fall of 2020. 

I have been coaching various sports since the winter of 2020. I started as an Assistant Varsity Boys Basketball Coach. The following school year I was Assistant Varsity Boys Basketball Coach and Head Junior High Boys Basketball Coach as well as Head Boys Golf Coach. For the 2022-23 school year I was Assistant Varsity Football Coach, Assistant Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, and Head Boys Golf Coach. I plan to continue my coaching career.

I got my Substitute Teaching License in the fall of 2022.

In my free time I enjoy golfing, skiing, snowboarding, and spending time with family and friends.

Goal Statement

My goal in life is to graduate college with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I want to use this to pursue a career in statistics or something related to mathematics. I am also committed to teaching youth in various aspects. I have a substitute teaching license and have been coaching since I graduated high school. I am committed to teaching youth in both physical and academic aspects.
