    You're right. Your teacher is wrong, but this non-standard usage is becoming increasingly common. – StoneyB Mar 24 '18 at 11:56

    Ask your teacher if they would say "She went with I" ! – Kate Bunting Mar 24 '18 at 14:14

    As Kate suggests, at least for simple cases one can check validity by omitting the "Don and" portion of the sentence and seeing how it "sounds". You would not say "She went with I", you'd say "She went with me". Your teacher is wrong. – Hot Licks Mar 30 '18 at 2:11
  • A very easy rule to remember: after a preposition, use the object of a preposition. For example: for me, them, us, him, her, and of course, you, which doesn't vary. This particular grammatical point could not be easier. [sigh] – Lambie Mar 30 '18 at 2:19

"She went with Don and me" I think is the correct sentence. Grammatically speaking, "me" is a Company Complement. "I" is a subject. For example: "Don and I should go with her" is correct because "I" is subject.
