Mindy Dubisar


My name is Mindy Dubisar, I have been with the North Bend School District for 20 years.  I started out at North Bend Middle School in the front office, as that was the first year that they moved 6th graders to the Middle School.  They felt that a little more staffing would be necessary, with a half time Secretary.  As the year progressed, I moved across the hall to Student Services.  That is where I stayed until  March 2007.  Since then, I have been the Registrar at North Bend  High School.  Honestly, I was a little afraid of the "big high school" students, but have discovered that they are my favorite people. I have had many wonderful experiences over the years with our High School students and also the amazing privilege to meet over 75 Foreign Exchange students, which is something I never expected.  They have opened my world to many different cultures that I may have never experienced if I did not work at North Bend High School.
