Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Karen Luellen
My name is Karen Luellen, and I have happily been a kindergarten teacher at Beverly Elementary since 2004. 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. My husband Dan and I are a blended family with four children between us. Our oldest two children are in college and youngest two are in high school. When I’m not teaching, I am writing my next book, reading my Kindle, playing with my four rescue pets (2 dogs, 2 cats), 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!
