My name is Bryan Kelly and I’m currently in the Noyce STEM Fellowship atUniversity of South Florida.  I was born in Ft. Lauderdale and I’ve lived here my whole life.  After graduating from J.P. Taravella High School in 2004, I enrolled at the USF and graduated manga cum laude with a Bachelor of Science’s degree in Biomedical Sciences. 

During my undergraduate studies I was a resident adviser at USF, where I served the community by being a mentor, resource, and tutor to fellow students.  After undergrad I pursued a degree to become an Anesthesiologist Assistant.  I performed many difficult tasksduring my rotations such as placing IVs, intubating patients on the operating table, performing since Iplaced a central line in an infant that was about to undergo open heart surgery.  Oddly, what I enjoyed the most about that career was teaching patients about their procedure and comforting them, so I decided to make a career change. 

My pursuit for this career path is also largely due to the experiences and efforts I had with past teachers.  Their examples and impression of teaching have given me a greater respect for helping others.  Some of my most memorable moments in middle and high school were the hands on experiences in the classroom, such as looking under a microscope in biology with the aid of my teacher.  These great teachers I’ve been with have made me want to be a great teacher as well.
