My name is Kelly Beagles! I have been teaching since 2005. I feel so
privileged to be teaching Second Grade at Deer Creek Prairie Vale Elementary.
I was born and raised in Edmond. I graduated from Edmond North High School. I
attended Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK. I got
married on June 24th, 2006. My husband, Cory, is a firefighter. I have two
wonderful daughters. The oldest is Audrey Claire born Sept. 3rd, 2007. The
youngest is Lilian (Lily) Beagles born April 17, 2010. I love my family more
than anything!!!! We have two dogs and a cat. A beagle named Bella, a Shih zu
named Conner, and an orange tabby cat named Strawberry Raspberry Crème Orange
Audrey Beagles. If you are wondering, my daughter Audrey named the cat.

development, plans before, during and after every lesson, is empathic, and
