Mrs. Lori McNamara

My name is Lori McNamara and I am thrilled to join Chavez Elementary and the Pre-K team!  I have always known since I was a child that I wanted to be a teacher because I love working with kids to help them use their unique gifts and talents to learn and grow.  I went to Texas A&M University (Gig’Em Aggies!) for my undergraduate degree where I majored in Spanish and Education.  I have taught Pre-K through 1st grade students for over 21 years.

My husband Mac and I have been married for 17 years.  We have a 22 year old daughter named Ann Marie who graduated college in May with a degree in Psychology.  Together we have 2 cats (Oreo and Texas “Tex”) and a guinea pig named Charlie.  In my free time, I like to spend time reading and being with family and friends.  And just this summer, I have found that I really love traveling by boat looking for unique shell treasures on Florida beaches!

I am looking forward to an AWESOME year with the amazing staff, students and parents at Chavez!
