A big round of applause to Emily Dugan! There are few teachers in our young lives that make such a big impression on us. Emilyís experience with her first grade teacher obviously made a lasting mark, so that she now carries that torch. Iím sure her students years from now will recall their time with her with fondness and respect. Whitefish is blessed to have her. Let us hope that we can keep Emily and many of other stellar instructors in this school district.
