Ms. Lauren Panarello

I look forward to watching our "Purple Martin" readers soar.


I am a graduate of Chapin High School, Clemson University and the University of South Carolina. I have been an Early Childhood teacher for fifteen years. I have taught one year in third grade at Nursery Road Elementary, thirteen years in second grade at Lake Murray Elementary, and this is my second year as a reading interventionist at Piney Woods Elementary.


I am thrilled to be serving as one of the reading interventionists at Piney Woods Elementary. It has been a dream of mine to work with readers of all ages in the elementary setting. Being a part of the First Flight Crew at Piney Woods Elementary has been an added bonus.


I am an avid reader who loves traveling to new places, hiking in the mountains, looking for waterfalls, photography and spending time with friends and family.


I have been married to my wonderful husband, Matthew, for eleven years and we have a baby girl who will turn two in December. We have a German Shorthaired Pointer named Maisel who loves the outdoors, snuggling, going for rides and playing with her family. We also have three cats named Idun, Katniss, and Freyja. Our fur babies are also "our babies". 


Please email me with any questions or concerns. Remember, I'm here to help support you and your child.


Let's soar together!
