As a teacher, he taught ELA and Social Studies (and two years of Algebra!) at the middle school level in Dorchester, East Boston, and Mattapan. He also coached the debate, mock trial, basketball, flag football, and chess teams during that time.
Kelly took a year off from teaching in 2018 to work on political campaigns in Massachusetts and North Dakota. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Trinity College in Religion and Philosophy and a Master of Education degree from Boston College’s Lynch School of Education in Secondary English.
