Ms. Karen Luellen

Kindergarten Teacher

My name is Karen Luellen, and I have happily been a kindergarten teacher at Beverly Elementary since 2003.  I graduated with honors from Emporia State University in Kansas (Class of ’95) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and dual specializations in Early Childhood and Multiculturalism in the Classroom.  I have two college-age children.  My daughter Kathryn is working on her PhD in political science at the University of Dublin, Ireland.  My son John is attending Stephen F. Austin as a senior working toward his degree in Psychology.  When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Joe and our family and friends.  I also love reading sci-fi novels, browsing antique shops, or playing word games.  I feel truly honored to teach kindergarten and cannot imagine a more supportive and caring environment for children to learn and grow than Beverly Elementary.  My personal goal is to offer a happy and safe place for children to feel accepted, appreciated, and encouraged to show perseverance as we work together to meet their individual needs.  I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
