Ms. Donna Matthews

Welcome! 

It is with great delight to announce that I will be teaching various Apogee course offerings in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Your children inspire me everyday. They amaze me, and are already changing the world. Thanks for sharing them! I am looking forward to working with the LMS staff to provide each child unforgettable, challenging experiences. 

A little about me...this is my 22nd year of teaching.Throughout my career I have been fortunate to be an elementary classroom teacher, a gifted coordinator, and a gifted educator. I love to support and challenge students, and to learn, absorb, listen, and ask questions. Reading, weight training, concert-going, kickboxing, Pilates, running, cooking, traveling, spending time with family and friends, attending sporting events, and teaching are some of my favorite things. My mom and I were able to attend the Oscars Red Carpet Fan Experience; thus, below you can see that picture along with friends and I kayaking and canoeing!

Our room number is 129. We are downstairs in the newer wing by Ms. Kathleen Mercury and Ms. Stephanie O'Brien.
Please contact me by emailing me at dmatthews@ladueschools.net (preferred method), or you can leave me a voicemail at 314.983.5832. Thank you for being my educational partner! I am looking forward to a memorable, exciting year together!
