Kelley Tenny

Overcoming Mediocrity


Kelley Tenny

Kelley Tenny, a “life-long learner,” has a passion for learning that can be traced back to her early childhood education. Born and raised in a household of high expectations, she strived to excel in school and could always be found with her nose in a book.

Her educational journey brought her to Long Beach for college, where her passion for health and wellness led Kelley to pursue a degree in health education. Her desire to go into public health was detoured when her college mentor told her that she would make a great health teacher. During a time when California was suffering a teacher shortage, Kelley’s love for learning, education, and desire to serve others took over, and she stepped foot inside her first classroom in inner-city Long Beach.

And this is where her “detour” as a teacher turned into a passion for empowering others through learning.

Years of teaching experience, in middle school and later on at the university level, unveiled that not all people found learning easy. Barriers like teaching methods, distracting environments, poorly written curriculum, and accessibility issues made it difficult for students to find success in the educational setting.

What if education could not only be created to meet the needs of the learners but be placed at their fingertips as well, removing barriers like transportation and cost, to name a few?

It was then that Teach Your Brilliance was born. Kelley founded a company that supports others in teaching their brilliance by creating online courses that are embedded in entrepreneurial pedagogy and delivered in a variety of ways to meet all the needs of possible students.

Kelley saw that this could be the way to shift education as we know it by removing so many of the barriers that are found in traditional education. And what better way to empower than to inspire other educators, authors, coaches, and consultants to share their brilliance with others?

Now a married mom of two, she resides in Long Beach and continues to not only teach college but also develop curriculum and create online courses for entrepreneurs that are ready to be a part of this educational movement.
