An Annapolis High School student-teacher with the University of Maryland was killed this weekend in a traffic accident in the town of Deerfield, outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Hanna LeBlanc and her husband, were stopped at an intersection in their vehicle and were hit by another vehicle as they attempted to cross the highway.
Both were taken to the University of Wisconsin Hospital where Ms. LeBlanc passed away and her husband remains in critical condition according to The Courier. The LeBlancs had been married almost 2-years.
Annapolis High School sent home a letter last night advising the students and staff of her death. LeBlanc has made quite a mark on Annapolis High School and was loved by her students and respected by her peers.
Though Ms. LeBlanc had been with our school only since August, she was very popular not only among the math students she taught but among our entire student body and faculty. Ms. LeBlanc had an ability to see the positive in every person she met, and quickly came to love our school, staff, and students. She absolutely loved what she did here, and often arrived early and stayed late because she was so dedicated and passionate about what she was doing. She was here just a short time, but made an enormous impact on us all.
The school is making counselors available to students as needed.
