Ms. Dee Hoyett

Greetings Trip Elementary School Community! I’m Dee Hoyett (pronounced Hoy-(Yay) originally from Detroit, but a proud Grayson resident for 3 years now. I am honored to join the Ram Counseling Department & School Community. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Tennessee State University and M.Ed. in School Counseling from National University in Los Angeles. Prior to transferring to Gwinnett County Public Schools, I was a counselor for DeKalb County Schools and Los Angeles Unified School District. While it is very important to engage in enjoyable activities to balance our personal and professional lives… My peace of mind is my little one; Taylor Grace. “All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and someone who believes in them” –MJ
