Hi! My name is Lori McDonough. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1987 and began teaching at Hooven Elementary, earning my Master's degree four years later. After teaching 2nd grade at Hooven for 3 years, I moved to Whitewater Valley Elementary, teaching 2nd grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade. I moved to the Jr. School in 2014 when the 6th grade moved over to the Jr. School. In addition to teaching, I am also the Director of Music at Northwest Community Church in Colerain, and I love to sing and play several musical instruments. My husband is a playwright and freelance writer, and I have two sons. My younger son is a student at the University of Cincinnati. My older son is a college professor in the Communication Department at UC and he and his wife also work for the UC campus ministry organization called The Navigators.
