"Each year, as I read over the biographies of the NACTA Teacher Fellows, I feel inadequate in my own teaching," Dougher said. "So, I am truly humbled by my peers' and students' recognition of my efforts and accomplishments."
The Teacher Fellow Award recognizes individuals whose efforts represent the very best in agricultural higher education.
Dougher received the award for her efforts to help students succeed in the horticulture field by implementing active learning in the classroom, organizing horticulture open houses, advising clubs--including the horticulture club, arranging community service activities, connecting undergraduates at MSU with K-12 students, providing opportunities for her students to network with people in the horticulture industry and coordinating internships.
Dougher's current research includes commercializing the production of native Montana plants. She serves as a member of the MSU Teaching Learning Committee and western region director for NACTA.
NACTA seeks to advance the scholarship of teaching and learning in agricultural, environmental, natural and life sciences.
