Ashley Anderson (PE), Karri Amelunke & Kathleen Downy (Guidance Counselor), Allie Rogers (Music), Kim Taggart (Library), Bree Lindsay (Art), Meghan Murphy (Reset)We like to have fun too!Ashley Anderson-PEI am excited to be teaching Physical Education at the primary this year. I attended Jefferson City High School and graduated from Hannibal La-Grange College. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my husband and children, as well as our other family members. I also coach high school softball. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.Kim Taggart-LibraryI am a proud graduate of Southern Boone along with my husband and our children Spencer and Sayde. After teaching in the classroom for 12 years I was fortunate enough to become our school's Library Media Specialist. Not only do I enjoy reading and hiking, but I also love spending time with our incredible specials team! I am grateful to have the best job ever!Alexandria (Allie) Rogers-MusicI am thrilled to be creating music with the wonderful students at the primary school. I was born and raised in Columbia and then went on to receive my music education degree from the University of Kansas. This will be my first year teaching and I am excited for this new journey to begin. In my classroom, I believe in creating a welcoming environment where students are motivated and inspired to learn. My hope is to inspire passion in every student; they will create it, feel it, hear it, and see the world with it. Music is wonderful in that it works in a different way for each individual!

I am over the moon about my role at the Primary! The Reset Room is a place of understanding and making connections. I am here to help students reset to learn! When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dustin, and our kiddos, Quinten, and Alyssa.Bree Lindsey - ArtMy name is Bree Lindsey and I am the art teacher at our primary school.
