Hello! My name is Kelly Brahn and I teach middle school science here at Southland.
My husband Mike and I live in Osage, IA with our two kids. Our son Ben was born in 2015 and daughter Addison (Addy) was born in 2017.
I grew up in the Twin Cities & after high school, I first attended The College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, MN and majored in communications and minored in sports medicine. After college, I worked in the Twin Cities in marketing for five years before going back to school for education. I graduated with my Master of Arts in Instruction with teaching licensure from St. Mary’s University in Winona, MN in 2012. I worked as a science teacher in the LeRoy-Ostrander School District for seven years before coming to Southland in 2019.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching and playing sports, traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with my family. In the fall, I work as a volleyball official in Iowa. I’m excited to be teaching middle school science and to be a part of all the great things happening in the Southland School District.
