Alicia Hewitt

My name is Alicia, I have the honor of being the art teacher here at MSP. My husband, Sam and I met in Ohio where we grew up, and shortly after being married, we moved to Nashville. We now live in Spring Hill with our two kids, Kaylen and Zoe (who are both Msp alums) and our basset hound Sophie. I truly love teaching kids about art and giving them a chance to experience different mediums! I have taught at Mustard Seed since 2009 and I couldn’t imagine a better job for me!


Lynelle McDonald

My name is Lynelle McDonald and preschool music is what I do! It’s why I was born. It is my joy to teach little ones and it has been for more than 25 years. I have taught a wide range of music classes and piano lessons to preschoolers, home schoolers and even adults in the Nashville area since 1995. I have had the privilege to teach music at MSP for 11yrs. I knew I had to be a part of this special place when my three boys Hayden 21, Ryder 17, and Kieran 15 went through the program when they were 4 and 5years old. It is my sincere belief that Mustard Seed Preschool is a shining example of the Gospel being intentionally taught and lived out in the lives of our teachers and students and their families.  It truly is a slice of Heaven on earth.


Joanna Reategui

My name is Joanna Reategui and I have been married to my husband Nolan for 16 years. We have four sons, Santiago 12, Luca 9, Cristiano 5, & Mateo 5. I lived in Cusco Peru working with preschool aged children with MTW in 2004 & 2005, which is where I met Nolan and learned Spanish. Upon my return to the States, I worked as an assistant and Spanish teacher at MSP for 3 years before Nolan and I had children. This is now my 3rd year back at MSP. My days are spent feeding 4 hungry boys, but I love gardening, taking care of my chickens, Titans football, and pretty much anything outdoors. I am so excited to share my love for Christ and the Spanish language with the students this year.
