As a VPK teacher, I find solace in helping little minds grow and get ready for kindergarten. Growing up, I worked on a Bachelor's Degree in Commerce but after moving to the United States I chose a more rewarding career in childcare. I have 8 years of experience as a teacher and director.

I am the Owner and Director of Cornerstone Preschool. I was born in India and moved to Florida in 2002. I am happily married with 2 beautiful children. I have worked in childcare for over 10 years and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Commerce. I love coming to work each morning to greet my wonderful staff, great parents, and amazing children!

My name is Alannah but I like to go by Ms. A! I recently moved back from Oahu, HI and started working here at Cornerstone. I have worked with children in the past at the YMCA and I am a big sister to 6 siblings. I love helping children grow and learn more about the world!

Shireen Bashta, VPK Teacher

I have been working in childcare for many years and I enjoy my profession so much. The children always put a smile on my face and teaching them is a joy. I also have 2 children of my own and a wonderful husband.

Amieris Borrego, VPK Teacher

Although I am new to Cornerstone, I am not new to teaching. I have taught children in Egypt and I also have 2 lovely children of my own. I love coming to school every day and seeing so many smiling faces eager to learn new things!

I am an experienced childcare provider who has been working in the field for 6 years. I am dedicated to helping children better understand the world around them through meaningful instruction. I believe learning enriches the lives of both children and parents.

I am the Assistant Director at Cornerstone Preschool. My first job was a summer camp counselor at the YMCA and I have been in love with teaching ever since! I have been in this field for about 7 years now and have worked with many different age groups. I pride myself on my knowledge of early childhood development and I find great joy in applying my skills to provide quality care to the children and families of Cornerstone!

I've been teaching for about 2.5 years and I am excited to continue in this field. I hope to further my education in early childhood development through both formal schooling and hands-on experience. Guiding children through milestones and seeing them grow before your eyes in truly incredible. It makes me proud to be a teacher.
