Mrs. Lori McDonald
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the College of Education at Texas A&M University... Whoop! 👍
I'm Texas Certified for Mathematics grades 7-12, as well as several other content areas and grade ranges. Prior to my time at London ISD, which began full-time in 2015, I taught in schools in Bryan, TX and in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Grades and subjects I've taught besides Middle School and High School include 4th grade, Kindergarten, and ESL PreKindergarten.
As a London Pirate Faculty Member, I teach 7th grade Pre-Algebra, 8th grade math, HS Algebra 1, and I've taught HS Geometry Pre-AP. I love to see students develop confidence and a growth mindset in math, as we use it (yes, even algebra) on a daily basis without even knowing it! Activities, projects, goofy songs, and puns are not foreign to my classroom. Come ready to learn!
I currently coordinate Middle School UIL academics and speaking competitions, which begin practice during the 2nd/3rd Six Weeks and culminate in district competition just before and/or after the Christmas Holiday Intersession. Events I coach are Calculator Applications and Number Sense. I am also coordinating the 8th grade Washington D.C. trip for 2020.
