I never used to like English, but after having Mr. Kelly I looked forward to his class everyday. He was really a great teacher.

Mr. Kelly is such an awesome teacher that I'm writing this over 5 years after taking his class. He made English interesting because he always encouraged us to read deeply and express our ideas. And he was always so animated, sometimes even acting out parts of stories. As someone who generally hated school, I'm a little surprised that from time to time I think about how much I enjoyed his class and how much influence one teacher had on how I read as an adult. NOT FOR SCHOOL BUT FOR LIFE! WOOOOOOO

He's definitely one of the best teachers at Archbishop Molloy. He really cares and honestly does a lot for his students. He sometimes can be repetitive but he just wants us to get the message. His class isn't easy, totally not impossible though. You have to do the work to do well, quizzes and exams are very fair. Paying attention and doing homework is essential to doing well in his class. Mr Kelly is overall one of the best teachers I've ever had and really caring.

I've had him freshman and sophomore year. Hands down the BEST teacher in archbishop Molloy. He really knows what he's talking about and his passion for what he does makes you want to learn even more. If you pay attention in class and do your homework, his tests should be easy. He makes you see the book in ways you never thought of before and actually teaches real life lessons.

I had Mr. Kelly for sophomore year English and I can easily say that it was my favorite class of the year. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about what he was teaching. I learned so many life lessons and I am going to miss having him next year. As long as you do what he tells you to do for assignments, which is read, mark up the margins, and do the study guide, you will do really well. If you try to understand what you're reading, and absorb what is being said, the grades will come anyway.

seriously, the best teacher i've ever had in my life; i would of never even bothered to "rate" him if he wasn't. english class has always been easy to me, but i've never actually had a liking towards it until i had him. he was a great speaker and his classes were fun most or the time. i don't think i've ever dread going to his class because he's just that awesome. with his help, i was able to get into english 10 honors! the only sad part is that he won't be able to be my teacher again this year
