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.

I am the lucky wife of Daniel Herbert and I have two fur babies, Mavis the cat, and Pipa the pup! I am a graduate of Concordia University Saint Paul.  I received my degree in Elementary education.  I then continued my education at the University of Montana Western where I received my endorsement in Special Education. My hope is to use my creativity more in the classroom, finding new and engaging ways to teach the generations to come. It is also my hope to go back to school to work towards a Master’s degree in Education. I have many hobbies including; Camping, hiking, traveling, reading, water coloring painting, embroidery, and film photography.
