  • Welcome Students & Parents!


    My name is Mrs. Lauren McDonald. I teach Geometry & Algebra I. I am new here to Effingham County and to Georgia. Some of you may know me from last year as Ms. Deloach's substitute while she was on maternity leave.

    I graduated from Broward College with a Bachelor's of Science in Secondary Math Education and then from the University of Florida with a Master's in Business Administration (Go Gators!). I have been teaching both middle and high school math since 2010.

    I have three amazing kids: two at Effingham Middle and one at Rincon elementary. In my free time I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with my family, cooking, and watching sports.

    Tutoring is offered Wednesday and Friday mornings, before school from 7:40 AM - 8:10 AM. I can be available some days after school or during second lunch by appointment only.
