Katie Webb

Katie Webb has joined the PSRS/PEERS Board of Trustees as an active member of PSRS. She fills an open Board seat created by the retirement of Dr. Melinda Moss in October 2022. Her term on the Board runs from February 6, 2023 through June 30, 2024.

Since 2009, Webb has served as a K-5 music teacher at Mark Twain Elementary in Hannibal, Missouri. She also served as administrative intern at Veterans Elementary during the summer of 2022 where her responsibilities included preparing curriculum, creating referral forms and handling student discipline situations. 

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master of Arts in elementary education from Truman State University, as well as an Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University. 

Webb has been a member of the Missouri State Teachers Association (MSTA) since 2008 and has served in several leadership roles including building representative, vice president and president for the Hannibal Community Teacher Association (CTA); executive committee member, vice president and president for the Northeast Region Teachers Association; and as chair for MSTA’s statewide committee on education policy. She currently serves as the chair of the MSTA Articles, Bylaws & Rules committee. Webb serves as the lighthouse coordinator for the Leader in Me program at her school and is an active member of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). 

"Katie’s teaching and leadership experience are impressive, and she has demonstrated her passion for working on behalf of her fellow educators," said PSRS/PEERS Executive Director Dearld Snider. "We welcome her to the Board and look forward to her insight and input as she puts her knowledge and skills to work for the benefit of our membership."

The seven-member Board consists of four elected and three governor-appointed trustees. Elected trustees are selected by vote of the members and retirees of both Systems. However, in this case, Webb was the only candidate meeting required filing qualifications. Therefore, no election was required.
