Hi, I'm Tekelia Kelly--an entrepreneur, engineer, educator, editor, and entertainer. My mission in life is to design, develop and deliver instruction that empowers education; to celebrate life and learning, and make knowledge an asset "for your information". "To me, the arts build education"; and STEAM equals STEM plus Arts Integration . STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education empowers learning and students to move "full steam ahead", where students can learn, problem solve and become critical and creative thinkers--to know, grow and go "from school to work more successfully".
I believe everyone has a special gift inside
That makes them one-of-a-kind.
I believe when people work as a "labor of love"
They connect with their heart, body, soul and mind.
When I see the word "heart", I think "HE-Art"
As in THE CREATOR--"How great thou ART DIVINE".
It is said "as a man thinks in his heart so is he".
So I work to bless the hearts and minds of mankind.
