Mr. Kelly

This is my 19th year teaching Social Studies at Hazelwood West Middles School. Before teaching in Hazelwood and moving to St. Louis, I taught for 14 years at Southside Middle School in Florence, South Carolina. I teach 6th grade Ancient History. I look forward and am excited to be teaching your child about history in a way that will be engaging to your child and allow them to take an active role in their learning.

I love traveling, cooking, gardening, hiking, working in the yard, and playing with my two dogs in my free time!

I encourage and welcome parental input in the learning process. Please feel free to reach out to me at any point if you have any questions. My email is
