This woman is amazing. She is hilarious and just utterly crazy. I love her so much! She makes some poor decisions when it comes to casting plays and musicals. I have no idea why a particular guy whose name rhymes with gone be'ganjilo gets good parts because his acting sucks and he can't sing. Apart from errors like that Levesque is wonderful.

She is just...well...unhelpful. She's funny, but she needs to retire.

I absolutely adore this woman. She is CRAZY and her directions may be complete nonsense. BUT shes actually an amazing person. She knows so much about theater and the audience. Ive learned a lot from her. and plan to do so. Also she has told me "you are a lampshade", one of many TERRIFYING moments under the direction of mama L

I had her freshman year! she's so funny and helped me understand a lot of aspects of theater. But please do your quarter projects, it's basically the only grade you get in book.

Everyone loves Levesque, even if she drives us all nuts. Her accent is fun to mimic (everyone I know, who does theatre, can), and she's a lot of fun. Her directing is a little...vague, but all in all the plays are worth the madness. Class is super chill.

She can help you a lot if you pay attention - if you make the effort to get better and pay attention to her advice, there's a lot to be learned. She talks for a very long time, but if you just cut her off when she gets to a good stopping point, you'll be fine.

She is nice as long as you are nice to her. The class does move really slowly, but you learn a thing or two. I'm talking about Theatre Arts, not Tech.

Mama L's been amazing for me. I've gotten to love drama and even her rambling. I may be one of the few that pays attention though. Still, great class and great teacher. PS Her musicals ROCK! CAPPIES!

She can't teach at all... but her class is easy and she's really sweet. If you stay on her good side. I've never learned anything in her classes or during the shows. Fun, though.

Mamma L is a wonderful lady who will really help you excell if you get on her good side and dont start a lot of teenage drama.

Ugh, terrible! You don't learn anything. WSHS theatre used to be really well known and REALLY good. She sure turned the department in the opposite direction.

She's an awesome lady! She's kind of like a grandma: very nice, yet very forgetful. She talks a lot, but if you pay attention, you do learn valuable life lessons. She tends to give you assignments last minute, so be prepared to use your short term memory a lot! :)

She came into West Springfield and the drama department became a disaster. Doesn't anyone remember Mrs. Welch's pro quality musicals that actually sold out?

Obviously dedicated, but she wasted a lot of our time, didn't give much one-on-one help, and used us to help in shows we weren't otherwise involved in.
