Kristi Varner, English Language Arts

I am excited to be at Keytesville! I look forward to meeting of all of you. Here is a little bit about who I am and where I come from.

1995 Graduated Marceline High School

2000 Graduated Missouri State University with a BS in Education English major

2006 Graduated William Woods University with a Master’s in Secondary Education

I started my career as an English teacher at Marceline High School in 2001. I taught 7-9 Language Arts and coached middle school track and basketball. In 2006 I transferred to Brookfield High School where I taught HS English and Drama. I coached middle school softball, basketball, track, and directed the HS play. I also taught English adjunct classes for North Central Missouri College from 2008-2010. I left the teaching profession in 2011 to pursue a career in business. I worked from 2011-2015 for The Living Well Company where I started out in Advertising. During my tenure for The Living Well Company I worked my way to VP of Sales and International Wholesale. In 2015 I returned to my true passion; teaching! I taught HS English and Dual Credit English at Carrollton High School and was the HS Asst. softball coach.

My husband, Jareme Varner is employed at Bailey Brothers Collision in Brookfield, MO. We have been married for 16 years and have two sons. We welcomed our first son, Jaden Bradley Varner in March of 2003. In May of 2008 we were blessed with our second son, Jett Richard Varner. Family time is very important to us. During the summer my boys and I like to travel and fish! We love sports and outdoor activities. Jaden is a Freshman at Brookfield High School and plays football. Jett will be attending the 4th grade at Keytesville this year.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.
