Hello! My name is Carl Dugstad and this is my second year as PK-12 principal at Clearbrook-Gonvick.

I am from just up the road growing up and graduating from school in Oklee, MN where my mom was a teacher. I went to college at BSU in Bemidji, MN where I majored in Social Studies Education for grades 5-12 with a minor in Geography. My first teaching job was at Cass Lake-Bena High School. I taught social studies and coached basketball there for 7 years. I then moved to Laporte School for the next four years where I was a teacher, coach, the tech. guy, and the Dean of Students. I also finished my Administrative Licensure while working at Laporte. I interviewed at Clearbrook-Gonvick in the spring of 2018 and the rest is history.

Personally, I have a wife, Tiffanie, who is an RN in Bemidji, MN. I have three kids and two of them attend Clearbrook-Gonvick and are proud to be little Bears. My family and I enjoy riding our Ranger around the trails of Leonard, MN when we get some free time.


It is great to be a Bear!
