Kelda Massey graduated with honors from Freed-Hardeman University, earning a bachelor’s degree in History and Bible and then a master’s degree in Education. Her teaching career began in 2002 when she taught history and government at the high school level. After realizing she needed the excitement, variety, and volume that only a group of young children can bring, she made the leap to teaching elementary school where she had much more time to spend on fun pursuits like reading aloud and doing science experiments, but much less time for lunch. Nevertheless, she truly loved her years in the classroom and especially enjoyed teaching math, history, geography, and Bible to open and tender hearts and minds. Now she delights in teaching at VSA, homeschooling her two sons, and being involved in educational programs for children in Haiti and in China. She enjoys life with her family in Tennessee, where her mornings usually start with a nice cup of coffee and time in God’s Word. Kelda finds great joy in inspiring children to learn and in leading them closer to God.
