This year marks Mrs. Lori Payne’s 25th year of teaching, and her years of experience at Bishop Fenwick have been some of the most powerful! This year Lori was recognized as one of Cincinnati Magazine’s Outstanding Educators, which for many of her students and colleagues, is no surprise.
Lori herself is transformational for her students. She is attentive, caring and driven by her faith… not to mention she is a math whiz! Lori is the type of teacher who truly goes above and beyond for her students. For example, one early morning a student approached her in the parking lot of school with a math question. With no materials there to show him, she actually used her finger in the dew of the window of her car to explain the equation for the student. Morning or night, Mrs. Payne is here for the students of Bishop Fenwick.
In describing Bishop Fenwick Lori states: “The students at Bishop Fenwick are the nicest, most respectful students I have ever worked with. Hands down, I would out them up against any school around!”
Lori has been happily married for many years and is a devoted Military mom to her son, Elijah, who is currently attending West Point Academy. Bishop Fenwick is so blessed to have Mrs. Payne!
