Papa Lo ‘07

Papa Lo ‘07

Bryant University, BS, RI, 2011
APPOINTED: 2012

Math, Soccer, Basketball, Dorm Parent.

With his quiet chuckle (or maybe it’s that he is 6’10”) Papa has the knack of engaging with Winchendon’s students – in the classroom, in the gym, in the dorm, and on the field. He enters classroom with this guiding thought, “a teacher not as someone with power but someone with a lot of responsibilities.” A Senegalese native he left home to finish high school at – you guessed it – The Winchendon School! Papa, wife Moumy ‘09, and their two kids, Pathe and Aminata, live on campus. A two-time NEPSAC Class C coach of year Papa knows his way around the basketball court…and around Winchendon!

By the way...

  • Hero: My Dad is my Hero which is why I named my son Pathe after him
  • Superpower of choice: I would love to be able to fly and go to place or country whenever I want. Due to the fact that I am afraid of heights, I will choose to be invisible.
  • Favorite Winchendon tradition: Mountain Day would be my favorite. It is fascinating to watch students and faculty do something they wouldn’t have done if they did not come to Winchendon. I would never have done Mount Monadnock on my own.  I guess I am one of two teachers who had the privilege of climbing the mountain both as a student and as a teacher.
  • Song to start the day: “I FEEL GOOD” by James Brown or “Don’t worry, be happy” by Bob Marley
