Ashley Anderson-PE

I 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-Library

I 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! 

Bree Lindsey

I grew up and graduated in California, Missouri.  Even as a Kindergartener I wrote that “I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.”  Following graduation, I attended Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri.  After graduating in 2005 I started my teaching career.  I’ve taught at multiple grade levels including high school, elementary and primary.  My family includes my husband Josh, my daughter Carly, my son Brent and our youngest Edith.  My belief is that all of our student's fine arts classrooms are fundamental in providing various options for self-expression.  So, let’s make something! 

Meghan Murphy - Reset Room Teacher

I was born and raised in Kirksville and attended Truman State University. I was a Kindergarten Aide here at Southern Boone for two years before becoming the Reset Room Teacher. 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 - Art

My name is Bree Lindsey and I am the art teacher at our primary school. I have the best job in the world! My husband's name is Josh and I have three children our oldest is Carly, our middle is Brent and the youngest is Edie. If you can’t find me teaching, I’m probably on a hike or taking a canoe ride.
