Bio: Lauren Duffy

Hi, I’m the 1st grade teacher and this is my 3rd year at St. John! What I love about St. John is the staff, community, and of course, my students. I attended the University of Alabama (Roll Tide) for my undergraduate and received my Masters in Teaching from St. Xavier. I am the oldest out of my three brothers. When I am not teaching, I love traveling with my family and attending White Sox games!
