All about Walsh: not only a science teacher

Provided by Walsh

The sun dipped low, casting a golden glow over the hills as a family embarked on their road trip. With dad behind the wheel, mom navigating and 6 siblings nestled in the back of a light blue 12 passenger van, they were ready for the open road.
Windows down, wind tousling their hair, they breathed in the fresh air and felt the thrill of adventure. The road stretched endlessly ahead, winding through the landscapes and charming towns. Each curve held the promise of new discoveries and shared experiences. With every mile, their bond grew stronger, woven together by laughter and love.
Nathan Walsh, a lover of laughter and adventure, grew up in a bustling household where road trips were core memories. “Whenever we’d visit extended family, it was always a road trip,” reminisced Walsh.
Raised in Grace Lutheran School from kindergarten, Walsh finished high school at North High. During his time in school, Walsh immersed himself in sports, dabbling in wrestling and basketball before finding his passion in baseball. “Playing baseball during the summer was one of my favorite memories,” he recalled.
High School at Fargo North offered Walsh a chance to explore various classes, “Kind of an array, it was good to kind of test out what I liked and didn’t, very beneficial looking back on it,” said Walsh.
He tried clay and sculpture freshman year and he took any gym class he could find. “I loaded up on those every chance I could, every semester I tried to have one if I could.” He also tried Latin for two years, and even had Mr. Volk as a teacher. Besides learning a new language he even added playing trumpet to his portfolio. With going to North, it’s no surprise that there are some teachers still here. He had Mrs. Consdorf for chemistry and Mrs. Bertsch before she went spent a few years at Davies.
Walsh later on went to college for a surprising major, “Coming out of high school I wanted to be an electrician, first year in college a building utilities mechanic degree, jack of all trades and a master of none,” said Walsh.
“Baseball was a driving force to why I went to Rochester,” said Walsh. Something fun about his baseball love was that because of his hard work, he got to help out at the Twin Stadium after his freshman year.
Walsh then took a turn from his mechanic love to teaching. “I first went to elementary ed and then science,” said Walsh. He has always liked math and science, “I enjoyed it, it just made sense.”
Walsh first taught at Sheyenne and now has been here for four years, loving to see and watch how the maturity and growth of students has grown from freshman year to now. A way he can see North’s students grow is by teaching physical science, mostly to freshmen, then teaching some of them again in AP Environmental Science. Not only does Walsh teach, but he is also able to watch his favorite sport almost every day during the spring by being the baseball coach.
In his free time, Walsh dons the hat of a handyman. “One of my hardest projects would probably be building our fence. You had to put the holes just right for the posts. I may have had to re-drill one or two,” said Walsh.
Outside his DIY endeavors, Walsh has a craving for good food, “My favorite would definitely be a good ribeye or even rib roast.” To wash it down, nothing beats an Arnod Palmer, a perfect blend of iced tea and lemonade.
In addition to the love of food, Walsh is a dog lover. His household contains two furry companions: Brownie, a wild and rambunctious mix of Lab, Husky and German Short-Haired Pointer, and a more laid back two-year old Saint Bernard named Rosie. “It’s a surprise to see the older of the two more energetic,” he chuckles, finding joy in the antics of his canine pals.
With Nathan Walsh, you’ll find a blend of science, sportsmanship, craftsmanship, canine companionship, and an unwavering appreciation for the joy of laughter, making every journey, whether on the road or in life, an adventure worth cherishing.
