Favorite Quote: “There is no I in Team!”


Mr. Kelly grew up in West Peoria and graduated from Spalding Institute. He went into education knowing he wanted to work with teenagers and enjoys the students, other teachers and administration, and the opportunity to go to daily Mass and Confession. An amazing coach for many years, Mr. Kelly remarks that he was lucky enough to coach “one of the hardest workers I have had the chance to coach. His name is Joe Girardi.” Mr. Kelly also enjoys watching sports and keeps busy doing chores. Every student who passes through PND is lucky to have Mr. Kelly for health class and witness his positivity and caring attitude.
