Mrs. Papania

Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Lauren Papania. I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year! I have been busy decorating our classroom and getting the materials ready in order to begin a fun-filled year together that will incorporate lots of learning!

I was born and raised in Cincinnati. I attended Our Lady of Victory and Seton High School. I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. This will be my sixth year as a Kindergarten teacher. And, it is my first year here! I am so excited to be a member of the staff at St. Aloysius Gonzaga School!

My husband, Jeff and I have been married for eight years. We have been blessed with three daughters: Riley, Ellie and Keira. I spend my free time primarily enjoying my family. I love to take my girls on fun adventures! I also like to read, and spend time with our families and friends!

I am looking forward to a year filled with academic, emotional, social, and spiritual growth. There will be lots of hands on activities that will not only keep your child enthusiastically engaged, but instill a love of learning. I look forward to being on this exciting journey with our child and you!

Please feel free to email me, anytime, at! Or, you can send me a message on Class Dojo!
