Kelisa Wing teaches 8th grade Language Arts and Reading to military children at Faith Middle School in Fort Benning, Georgia. She passes her life's motto: "Pursue it and Do it: build your team to fulfill your dream" to her students. Wing believes that all students have the capacity to learn as long as educators meet them at their points of need.

Mrs. Wing created a non-profit organization called #Squad Up for Education, Inc., to empower parents, students, and educators to commit to become partners in education. The goal is to never allow any child to fail by setting goals, developing a road map for future success, and working with the community to realize students' dreams. She also developed the Stop, Teach, Affect, Reach (S.T.A.R.) mentoring program in her school to assign every child an adult advocate.

She is a Toledo, Ohio native, who enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1999 as a Human Resource Specialist. She served six years and attained the rank of Staff Sergeant. Mrs. Wing credits the U.S. Army, along with her faith, for allowing her to realize her dream of becoming an educator.

She recently completed her second book, Weeds & Seeds: How To Stay Positive in the Midst of Life's Storms. Mrs. Wing holds a Bachelor's Degree in English from The University of Maryland University College, a Master of Arts in Secondary Education, and an Educational Specialist degree with a concentration in Curriculum, Instruction and Educational Leadership from the University of Phoenix. She is currently enrolled with the University of Phoenix in the Doctor of Education program.

She is married with three children.
