Mr. Lorang

My name is Justin Lorang and I am a Physical Education, Developmental/Adapted Physical Education (DAPE) & Health Education teacher at East Ridge High School.  In 2002, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology.  In 2003, I earned my Master of Education (M.Ed) in Applied Kinesiology - Physical Education from the University of Minnesota.  I also received my PreK-12 DAPE Licensure and a coaching certificate from the U of M.  In 2013, I received my 5-12 Health Education Licensure from Bemidji State University.

My Purpose Statement:
I am a teacher who impacts the lives of students through physical and team opportunities in which they develop and display integrity, honesty and a never quit attitude.

The Health and Physical Education Department at East Ridge High School has made a commitment to prepare students to live healthy, productive and physically active lives for the 21st Century.

Health and Physical education will provide every student with a variety of challenges that will contribute to the development and maintenance of their physical, cognitive, and affective well being.

Students will be provided with the foundation for making informed decisions that will empower them to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Health and Physical Education is a lifelong process, which is the primary responsibility of the student, shared by home, district and community.
