1986 National Teacher of the Year
Guy Doud was honored by President Ronald Reagan as America's Teacher of the Year in 1986. Since that time he has become a major voice on the American scene.
A graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and the recipient of an honorary doctorate, Guy serves on the Teacher's Advisory Board for the Children's Scholarship Fund, the Board of the Association of American Educators and has served on the Presidential Scholarship Commission. He received an Honorary American FFA Degree at the FFA National Convention for his work with FFA.
Guy Doud served on the Master Teacher Board for Prentice Hall and worked on helping assemble a new Literature anthology. His audio tape Teacher of the Year is the most frequently requested tape in the library of over twenty years of Focus on the Family radio programs. His books include the best sellers Molders of Dreams, Joy in the Journey, Living Beyond Regret and children's books Stuff Ya 'Gotta Know and God Loves Me So What?
Since Doud recognizes that education is everybody's business, he has spoken to many diverse groups world-wide. (Asbestos abatement contractors, funeral directors and rodeo crowds...) He has appeared on CNN, Good Morning America, C-Span, and Robert Schuller's Hour of Power.
Guy calls himself a "feeler" because he says he sees things "with his heart".
