Dr. Tanya Hyatt
Acting Head of School, Dean of Academics
Dean of Academics Dr. Tanya Hyatt began her career at Indian Springs in 2010 as our AP Biology instructor and has served as Chair of the Science Department since 2016. She received her B.S. in Biology from the University of Alabama and her Ph.D. in Nutrition Science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Her research focuses in part on obesity, insulin resistance, and inflammation, and how ethnic differences may impact these factors. As Dean of Academics, Tanya is responsible for ensuring the academic progress of our students and, given the individualized approach at Indian Springs, this means that she both helps to develop Springs’ overall curricula to enable our students to achieve and also works with individual students to develop programs that allow them to learn to their own abilities, interests, and needs.
