 Dr. Donna Nack, Ed.D was a lifelong educator.  She not only loved to teach but loved to learn. She graduated with her B.A. in Education from Harris Teachers College, St. Louis, MO in 1964.  She went on to earn her M.A. in Education Administrative in 1981 from Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University), as well as a Specialist in Education Degree in 1985 from Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University).  In 2007, Donna earned her Doctor of Education in Educational Administration from Lindenwood University, St. Charles, MO.  

 With over 45 years in education mainly in the St. Charles School District, Dr. Nack taught grades 4 and 5 in Washington Elementary in Mehlville, Garrett Elementary in Hazelwood and Harris Elementary in the St. Charles School District.  From 1980-1985, she taught the P.I.T.T.S. (Program for the Intellectually talented students), aka the gifted program, which she absolutely loved.  Following her career in the classroom, she became the principal of Benton Elementary School for ten years, then Blackhurst Elementary School until she retired from the district.  In 2004, she joined the education faculty full time as an assistant professor in the Education Division of Lindenwood University until retiring in 2013.
