My name is Jacob Kelly and I am the Middle School Math/Science Instructor at Holy Cross Lutheran School. I am married to my wife Marcie and we have three children, Cal, Kyle, and  Christopher. At age 30, I quit my job as a police officer and went back to school to become a teacher. I student-taught with Mr. Ochs in the fifth grade at Holy Cross, in order to spend more time with my children. I loved being at Holy Cross and longed for an opportunity to work there full time. When the opportunity for me to teach at Holy Cross came about, I prayerfully considered teaching middle school and believe that God has called me to be here. I am a graduate of Southwestern College. I love being around children and enjoy teaching using fun, interactive activities and technology.
