Ms. Lavallee, or Angelique Lavallee, was a science teacher that taught mainly sophomores, but the news of her death made an impact on all students. She was the freshman class advisor as well as a science teacher who worked at Massabesic High School for four years. Many of the students that had her said she was a great teacher and that she was a very nice lady. She also seemed to always make class fun.

Mrs. Pennell said, “I often heard laughing coming from her room when students were playing review games.”

Even the students that didn't have her and just passed by in the halls knew she was a very nice teacher. She left an impression on some teachers, too.

Mr. Cousins, another Biology teacher, said, “I will miss her enthusiasm and creativity.”

She was said to also be very devoted to her students and that she always believed that they could succeed. It was also said that she had been dealing with sickness for a few years, and that she always came to school even if she was hurting. Ms. Lavallee will be missed at MHS and our condolences go out to her friends and family. 


  1. Ms. Lavallee was one of the most courageous people I have known. I wish I had had the time to get to know her better. Those students that had her were very fortunate!

  2. She was a creative teacher and a wonderful, brave woman. I will sure miss her!

  3. A nice tribute from students ~
