For December’s Hometown Hero, we are spotlighting teacher Derek Fischer and Student/Miami Dolphins Fan Connor Yeager!
These two bond daily over this NFL team, but Connor isn’t his student and Mr. Fischer knew nothing about the Dolphins! He simply wanted to build a greater connection with Conner, a senior with autism who regularly stops into Fischer’s classroom to talk about the team!

Check out our full interview below to learn how Mr. Fischer was able to help Conner meet his dream team!

We’re so excited to showcase Derek and Conner as one of Bailey’s Hometown Heroes! If you would like to nominate a local hero to spotlight or would like to learn more about our program, Click this link:
