Doug Fisher is an amazing rural educator with a commitment to place-based education! Doug grew up in Cavalier, ND and went to school there. He taught there from 1990-2004, then took some time to teach outdoor place-based education at Teton Science Schools and work on his Ph.D., and now Doug is back teaching history, geography, and ecology there. He's also the advisor for the Future Business Leaders of America student group where he hopes to engage them in local place-based projects.

One of Doug's recent place-based successes is securing the donation of an open space property near town to the school district. The property is now accessible for use for outdoor place-based education, and Doug is leading trainings for other teachers at the Cavalier School to help them use the space more and better.
