Linda Armbruster’s fourth grade students wouldn’t be surprised to see their teacher at their soccer games or gymnastics events.
Going above and beyond is not a cliché with Linda. Conway Elementary School Principal Dr. Lane Narvaez says excellence in education describes Linda on so many levels. She encourages her students to excel and she willingly provides individual attention to make that possible.
Parents, students and the staff love her. Dr. Narvaez added, “Linda is one of the kindest people I know and her warmth affects everyone in the Conway community.” Her students call her fun and awesome. Teachers describe her as a gem.
Linda’s first assignment in the Ladue School District began in August 1996. She taught eighth grade math on the Pioneer Team at the Ladue Middle School. In 1999, she brought her passion to Conway Elementary School. She taught learning lab for several years before returning to the classroom as a fourth grade teacher.
She calls St. Louis her hometown. Linda has been married to John for sixteen years. They have three daughters: Julia, age 11, who attends the Fifth Grade Center. Amanda and Laura, ages 8 and 9 respectively, are students at Conway.
Linda earned her B.S. in Education from the University of Missouri at Columbia. She received her M.A. in Education and Reading Specialist Certification from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri.
