Hello, Southern Boone! My name is Kristin Catron, and I have been teaching in the primary school since 2012. I graduated from the
University of Missouri with my degree in Elementary Education and earned my Master’s Degree through the MU Teaching Fellowship Program while here at Southern Boone the following year. My favorite part about teaching is getting to know each child and watching them grow throughout the year. Go Eagles!
Hello Southern Boone! My name is Taylor Rehmus. I was born and raised in Chesterfield, MO where I attended Lafayette High School. I graduated from Missouri State University in 2020 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. The 2020-2021 school year was my first year teaching First Grade at Sparta Elementary School which is located right outside of Ozark, MO. My boyfriend is the K-2 Physical Education teacher at South Callaway and together we decided Mid-MO was where we wanted to land. I am excited and honored to be apart of the Southern Boone Family this year. I can not wait to spend another year teaching First Grade. I think it is the best! Outside of school I enjoy playing with my dog, spending time with my family, traveling and boating on Table Rock Lake. Go Eagles!
Southern Boone Primary is a great place to be! I have been teaching first grade here since 2016-2017. Before teaching at Southern Boone, I taught 1st grade in Mexico, MO (where I am originally from) for 2 years. I graduated from William Woods University in 2013. My favorite thing about teaching is getting to love on kiddos all day long! They make every moment worth it.

Hello Southern Boone community! My name is Christina Tracy. I am originally from Excelsior Springs, Missouri. I moved to Columbia to attend the University of Missouri, where I graduated with my Bachelors and Masters in education.

I was born and raised in Columbia and moved to Ashland with my family in 2012. I instantly fell in love with the school district and the community and knew this is where I wanted to stay!
