Welcome to Ms. McDonald's Classroom

  • Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year! My name is Lindsey McDonald and I'm thrilled to be starting another year at Bel Aire with all of you. I was born and raised in Orange County, where I received a Bachelors in Child and Adolescent Studies from Cal State Fullerton. After graduating, I taught Kindergarten and 5th grade in Tustin, before making a move to San Francisco in 2010. After that, I started teaching 3rd grade at Bel Aire in 2011. Moving to San Francisco is a decision I am so glad I made, and it only got better after I found a workplace filled with so many innovative, inspiring people. 

    Outside of work my husband, Andrei, and I are proud parents to our two little boys, Nico and Frankie. This summer was spent bike riding, visiting Tahoe, welcoming my new niece, and taking in as many fun, local activities in San Francisco as we could. In addition to being a mom, I also love to travel, follow baseball (Go Red Sox!), read and, most of all, love seeing live music.
