Chris Kelly
I have been the Media Specialist at Forestview Middle School since it opened in January, 2004. Prior to that, I worked at Riverside School in Brainerd for 19 years.

I attended Bemidji State University as an undergrad and St. Cloud State University for my graduate degree. I have been teaching in the Brainerd School District for 28 years.

My family lives in Brainerd and we have a gaggle of animals: two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, a Papillion, two cats and a Blue Crown Conure. I like to call our house The Zoo!

I enjoy gardening, playing around with my computers/tablets, riding my bike, kayaking and running.
The huge windows in the library allow students and staff to view the forest behind the school.
