Dr. Beth Kelly


This is my is my fourth year to serve as principal of Navo Middle School.  During my time here, I have been blessed to work with a dedicated staff.  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.  We are dedicated to emphasizing the values of respect, kindness, excellence, perseverance, and teamwork.

My roles in education have varied throughout my 22-year career. 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 12 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.

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