Statement from Terri Rousseau, Mother of Lauren Rousseau, on Behalf of Family

Lauren Rousseau, a UConn graduate, was one of six adults killed Friday at Sandy Hook School in Newtown.

The following is a statement from Terri Rousseau, mother of Lauren Rousseau, on the behalf of the family. It was e-mailed to Patch on Saturday:

The Connecticut State Police confirmed at 1 a.m. today that our beloved Lauren was among the victims of the Newtown shooting. Lauren wanted to be a teacher from before she even went to kindergarten. We will miss her terribly and will take comfort knowing that she had achieved that dream.

Lauren Gabrielle Rousseau was born June 8, 1982 in Danbury, where she lived for most of her life. She was a graduate of Danbury High Schood. She had a bachelor's degree from the University of Connecticut and a master's degree in elementary education from the University of Bridgeport. She had worked as a substitute teacher in Danbury, New Milford and Newtown before she was hired in November as a permanent substitute teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
