Director

I love my job as a Preschool Director. I have the opportunity to interact with the staff and all of the children on a daily basis. It is very rewarding to watch our children grow academically and spiritually. They are so open to learn about Jesus and all that He has done for us, and how much He loves us.

It has been an honor for the last few years to respond to God's calling in working with children.  I am privileged to share Christ with them in a Christ-centered environment.  I love being a part of their growth and development.  Every year is unique and every year is a new adventure.  Children are amazing!

MISS KAREN

Teachers Assistant

My desire is to teach preschoolers and train them in the ways of the Lord.  There's no greater joy or reward than knowing I made an impact on a little life for Jesus!  I strive to do everything with eternity in view.  Guiding and directing a little heart towards heaven is one important way to do that.

Favorite Bible Verse: "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV

Quote: Since coming to Cornerstone Christian Preschool & Kindergarten, I look forward each day to the smiling faces of the children as they come and go, and to the opportunity to interact with and encourage our CCPK parents and families.

Favorite Bible Verse: “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:1-5 NIV
