Cleveland (OH) community

Ohio iconThe first Lalanne cohort to serve the Diocese of Cleveland began teaching in the 2001-02 school year. Lalanne continues to serve under-resourced Catholic Elementary Schools and High Schools where we are needed.

We work with two people in the Office of Catechetical Formation and Education, Pam Ouzts (Special Projects Coordinator) and Susan Pohly (Assistant Superintendent-East). Ouzts serves as the local liaison to the Lalanne community. She welcomes new teachers, and also visits the community a few times a year. Ouzts is also the contact person for the community in the event of an emergency. Pohly serves on the Lalanne Advisory Board which meets two times a year. She works with the Lalanne Director to determine where the need for Catholic teachers is within the Diocese and helps us to develop relationships with new principals.

The Lalanne Cleveland community house is located on the property of St. John of the Cross Parish in Euclid.

Who we serve

Lalanne teachers in the 2017-18 cohort are serving in one elementary school and two high schools in the Diocese of Cleveland.
