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

Hi! My name is Kathy Self and I will be a part time counselor at Trip. I am very excited to be joining the Trip family and to be back in the Grayson Cluster. I was a teacher in Dekalb County for 7 years before becoming a counselor in Gwinnett County. I was a counselor at Walnut Grove Elementary for 6 years and Pharr Elementary for 18 years. I recently retired from Gwinnett County but missed the interaction with the students and staff so I decided to come back to work!  I have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia and my Masters and Specialist degree in school counseling are from Georgia State University.

I love spending time with my family when I am not at school. My husband and I have 2 children. Our daughter is a teacher at Grayson High School and our son is a welder. I enjoy hiking, camping, reading and taking my two dogs, Hobie and Sammy to the park. I am looking forward to a great year!
