In this chapter, the author chronicles experiences living and teaching in three rural communities in the Midwest and, consequently, these experiences' impacts on practice. The chapter begins with a discussion on rural sustainability and culturally sustaining pedagogies. Next, themes of community, place, and culture are explored. Pedagogical practices such as place-based education are discussed. Then, authentic experiences from three uniquely diverse settings are shared. Finally, a statement about how these stories and lived experiences shape teacher educator identity and practice is provided.
