Montgomery County teacher dies after suffering medical emergency in class (ABC7)

A Montgomery County middle school teacher died after suffering a medical emergency as she taught her students Thursday morning, Herbert Hoover Middle School confirms to WJLA.

She has been identified as Deanna Perucci. She was an English teacher who just started working at the school at the beginning of the current school year.

"For those of you who knew Ms. Perucci, we ask that you remember and celebrate her kindness and commitment to others, specifically to children," a letter sent home to parents from the Potomac school says. " She was a wonderful teacher that loved teaching at Hoover and cared deeply for our students."

A support team of counselors will join the staff starting Friday.
