|My deepest sympathies to Ms. Lebert's family and dear friends. Ms. Lebert was among the most dedicated teachers, and French class at Drury was one of the most fun! Her devotion to students did not stop at the end of ths school day; she shepherded us through many events in Notre Dame's Youth Group and took us on an unforgettable trip to Quebec. Many students will remember her always -- with fond memories and deep gratitude.|
