Lafayette School Board Superintendent Dr. Pat Cooper’s Office says a Lafayette High School teacher passed away Monday after falling ill during one of her class periods.

Cooper says Alicia Gauthier was committed to her students, her co-faculty and the rest of those at Lafayette High School.  Cooper’s office did not give an official cause of Gauthier’s death.

Gauthier had been a teacher at Lafayette High School for 15 years and had worked in the school system for 28 years.

Paramedics were called to the school, and they attempted to, but could not resuscitate her.  No students were in the room when the paramedics arrived.

Dr. Pat Leonard, Principal at the school says, “Her dedication and commitment was felt by all here at our school. She was a very talented teacher and her students always came first. Ms. Gauthier was certified in teaching gifted students Social Studies and Biology, but her favorite was American History.”

Cooper says their condolences go out to the Gauthier family along with her many students and faculty at the school.  He says special arrangements have been made to provide additional support to anyone at the school who made need it.
