Dr. Beth Kelly


This is my third year to serve as principal of Navo Middle School.  During my time here, I have been blessed to work with a dedicated staff whose mission is to serve our students.  With each new year as an educator, I am filled with excitement as I watch students grow socially, emotionally and academically.  I, and the Navo staff, will continue to build on student success.  It is important that students are provided opportunities to become engaged in and out of the classroom. 

My roles have varied throughout my 21-year career in education.  I began my career as a high school English teacher.  Since then, I have served as an assistant principal, associate principal, and principal.  Denton ISD has been my home for 10 years.   

I earned my undergraduate degree from The University of Louisiana at Monroe in English and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership at Texas Woman’s University. I have a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from The University of North Texas. I think it would be fair to say that my value of education is both professional and personal. 

My goal is to foster a love for learning, as well as ensuring every student feels valued and supported.  Working together as a Navo community, we will have a great year!
