Mrs. Lori Newkirk

Welcome, Ebenezer Eagles! 

I am Lori Newkirk, and I have been an educator in the incredible Effingham County School District for the past 21 years.  I began my career as a South Effingham Middle School teacher, teaching Math in the 6th and 8th grades.   I then assisted with the opening of Blandford Elementary School and had the privilege of serving as Assistant Principal there for the past 16 years.  In a desire to return to the classroom where it all began, I am excited and honored to continue my career at Ebenezer Middle School as a 7th-grade Math teacher!  My time as a teacher and administrator has brought me priceless memories, and I am thrilled to continue this journey in serving students in the classroom.

I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Grades in 2001 and then earned a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership in 2003.  In continuing my professional work, I was thankful to complete my Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership in 2005.

I have been married to my husband, Ben, for 15 years, and we have two wonderful sons.  Our oldest son is in 7th grade and attends Ebenezer Middle School.  He loves to play soccer, fish, and swim.  Our youngest son is in 5th grade at Blandford Elementary School, and he enjoys playing baseball, chess, and watching sports.  We enjoy traveling as a family and making memories together.  Some of my interests include boating, being on the lake, and watching sports.  I am an avid Georgia Bulldog fan and love attending the games to watch them play!

I am eager to embark on this journey with you as we promote lifelong learners among our students-the adventure awaits!  Looking forward to an incredible 2022-2023 school year!
