Kelda Massey earned her master’s degree in education, with teaching endorsements in both K-8 mathematics and social studies, from Freed-Hardeman University in 2002. She has enjoyed teaching Saxon math, history, and geography for over a decade in both public and private schools, and through homeschooling her own children. As a lifelong learner, she believes that good teachers should also be good students who challenge themselves to grow and develop professionally. Kelda enjoys taking continuing education classes in topics that pique her interest and is also an active member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. She delights in teaching at VSA, homeschooling her two sons, and planning travel adventures with her husband. She is thankful for her life in Tennessee with her family, which includes one big, bossy cat named Ellie, one tiny, timid cat (the true baby of the family) named Ginger, and one cute, clingy rescue dog named Lily. 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.
