We would like to thank Mrs. Emerson and Ms. Enfantino for their years of service and dedication to the students of Blackford and CUSD.

Both Mrs. Emerson and Ms. Enfantino have each taught over 23 years in the district.  They have given countless hours to planning, collaborating, designing, creating, teaching, assessing, nurturing, guiding and loving students and their profession.

Ms. Enfantino is finishing her career teaching TK, our youngest learners.  Mrs. Emerson will finish her career teaching Kindergarten.  They each have been instrumental in shaping the lives of our youngest learners.  

We are happy for them both and know they are both looking forward to traveling in their retirement!  Please join us in wishing them well in their retirement.
