We all have those teachers who leave a lasting impression. Pam Ihmels is just that for so many who went through Bismarck Public Schools.

She has been with the district for 37 years – this one was her last. Because of a bout with Breast Cancer and various other reasons, Ihmels decided to retire. The Will-More Elementary physical education teacher really felt the love at her retirement reception this afternoon. When we asked why she kept teaching for so long, Ihmels couldn’t help from getting a little choked up.

“Because of the kids, and the staff, and the administration, and the love of teaching,” said Ihmels.

Kim Schultz and Deb Schumacher were also honored at the Will-Moore retirement reception.
