My name is Charissa Sheffield and I am looking forward to serving as your child’s teacher this year. My name is Charissa Sheffield. My husband, John, and I live here in Franklin with our two children, Matthew (16), a Junior at Independence High School and Susanna (14) an eighth grader at Hillsboro Middle School. John and I are both originally from Alabama (War Eagle!). I have a bachelors degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. John is the Auburn alum in our family. We have been married 21 years and have lived in Tennessee since we were married. We are members of Christ Community Church. This is my eighth year to teach at MSP. I love teaching threes and young fours – their joy and enthusiasm for learning make me happy! It is an honor to participate in planting seeds of faith in their young minds and heart. I am so excited to get to know your children. I want to nurture a strong sense of confidence in each child in our class. Most importantly, I want to teach them that they are a most precious creation of God, our father. He loves them most of all and will always be present in their lives. “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me” Philippians 4:13

Ms. Leslie McCaskey and Ms. Beth Lindberg (W/F)

My name is Leslie McCaskey. I graduated with a B.S. in Mass Communications with a focus in Journalism and Graphic Design from MTSU. Immediately, after school, I worked in a design/marketing firm in central London UK called Pomegranate. After a 6 month visa stay, I came back to the states and started working in music promotions mainly within interactive marketing departments for labels such as Flicker Records and Provident (Sony). Just before becoming a mom to my son Britain, I starting working part-time for a faith-based online marketing firm called BuzzPlant implementing social media strategies. I continue to work for them when I'm not here at Mustard Seed. My son attended MSP for the 3’s, 4’s and 5’s programs and I fell in love with the school. I decided to come work for the pre-school while he’s at Kindergarten this year at Pearre Creek. I have been married to my husband, Skye, for 10 years now and we both love to travel. My favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 40:3 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
