Our Directors

Beth Clark
Beth ClarkDirector
After teaching Preschool for years, I took a break to have my 5 babies. I was excited to join the GDS team in the summer of 2013 as the Bible/chapel leader. In the fall I moved back into the classroom as one of the 3-4 year old teachers and taught until moving into the Director role in 2018.

I have a background in Child Growth & Development and am pursuing further education in Early Childhood and Family studies.

My husband and I have been married for 23 years, we have 5 children ages 4, 8, 12, 15 & 16 and live in Grassland.

I am so excited that God has led me to Grassland Day School! I have served as a Director in multiple Pre-School settings since 2009. I was raised in Natchez, MS, but moved to Denver, CO after graduating with my Bachelors in Child and Family Development from The University of Southern Mississippi. After living in Colorado for 15 years, God moved our family to Franklin, TN in March of 2018. I am married to Matt and we have one son named Wyatt. In addition to my role as a CO- Director at GSD, I am passionate about hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, and football. GO TITANS!
