Mrs. Taggart and Mrs. DeHaas


Please "Join the Journey" with me! I am so excited to introduce myself as the Primary School Library Media Specialist.

I am a proud member of this community and have worked within the district since 2000. You possibly know my husband, Lance Taggart (the local barber), my son, Spencer, and daughter, Sayde. I have had the privilege of teaching 3rd, 5th, and 2nd grade during my stay here at Southern Boone. Throughout my experience as an educator I have developed a strong passion for literacy.  I absolutely adore books and  using technology with our students! 


I received my Bachelors of Education from Columbia College and Masters of Integrating Arts in the Classroom from Lesley University.   Because of my education I feel it is the educator's job to reach all students at all levels within their own personal interests. My goal in the Library is to incorporate classroom curriculum and my passion for reading into the Library using technology. Throughout the year, all students will be learning the processes of the Library, research 2 continents, and most importantly be motivated to discover their personal interests. We will explore, embrace, and experience this "Journey" together!
