Toddler Teachers

 Tiffany HoytTiffany Hoyt – I am excited to be a part of Grassland Day School!  I have been teaching the toddlers on Wednesdays and Fridays since 2015. I received my bachelor’s degree in Child Life with a minor in Child Development at the University of Alabama and a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Lesley College in Boston, Massachusetts.  I taught first grade at Holy Rosary Academy in Nashville for three years and then was blessed with three amazing, beautiful children and a wonderful husband.  In addition to my love working with children, I also enjoy running, tennis, water and snow skiing, traveling and spending time with my family.

Thank you for trusting me to take care of your precious children!

Dee PowellDee Powell – I am so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful ministry at Grassland Day School.  I have been working with the toddlers on Tuesdays and Thursdays since 2014 and I love it!  I am originally from Kentucky and moved to TN in 2002.  I have a MA in Sociology with an emphasis in social research.  I worked in the family court system for several years.  My husband, Shannon, and I have been married since 1995 and have 3 children.  It is such a joy to work with the youngest group at the school!  With my kids getting older, I really miss the sweet toddler stage.  Thank you for allowing me to take care of your precious babies!


Angela McClure- I have been with Grassland Day School since 2015. I love my days at GDS loving on the children. They truly bring me so much joy. I  have a wonderful son, who is the light of my life. I thank God everyday for the life he has given me and the path he has chosen for me.
