    About Shane Kelly
      I am a graduate of Petal High School in 1996. I have been teaching Junior High, High School, and coaching baseball since 2001 at Starkville Academy and Hillcrest Christian School.  I begin teaching and coaching baseball as an assistant at Petal in the fall of 2012. In the Summer of 2018 I was hired as the head baseball coach for the Panthers.  My wife's name is Aimee and my son's name is Reed and my daughter's name is Isla.  I taught and coached at Starkville Academy for 1 year and I was at Hillcrest Christian School in south Jackson for the 10 years.  While at Starkville Academy and Hillcrest Christian School I compiled 250 wins and 3 State Championships.  I work very hard at what ever my job is, whether it be coaching or teaching.  I have always wanted to come back to Petal and be apart of the programs and the school system.  I look forward to the oppurtunity of teaching History at Petal High School, and building relationships with each child I teach and coach.
