The U-32 community has been deeply saddened by the loss of beloved teacher and colleague, Laure Angel. Laure passed away following a snowmobile accident on February 5th. Laure was a native of France, due to be sworn in as a US citizen on March 20th. She came to the US as a teenager, and graduated from the University of New Hampshire. This was her sixth year at U-32. Laure’s dedication to teaching, unstoppable curiosity and energy, insight, and love made her an incredible teacher, TA (teacher advisor), teaching partner, department head and union official.
Laure was engaged to be married to Kevin Wood, of Williston, with a mountaintop wedding planned for August. Her faith and trust in her students extended to her wedding planning–she was delighted to be planning a wedding that was “student-run.” She asked U-32 students to build centerpieces, take photos, play music, and design and make her wedding dress.
The tributes to Laure have been pouring in from all parts of the community. In the words of those who knew her in each of her roles, we can sense her legacy to this community. Keep Reading
