Leah Sopko & Sharon Winfield
My name is Leah Sopko and this will be my second year as a lead teacher for the 5s at MSP. I am so grateful to be a part of such a loving school with so many wonderful students and families as well as staff members. I was born and raised in the small town of Johnston, Rhode Island. I graduated from Trinity Christian Academy when I was 16. From there, I went to the Community College of Rhode Island for two years then transferred to Valley Forge Christian College near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I majored in private education, pre-K through 6th grade and graduated in December 2005. Throughout my education I worked in preschools and nannied for many years. While in college, I met my wonderful and loving husband, Matt. Shortly after we married in 2006, he transferred to Belmont University, which brought us to the wonderful state of Tennessee. We fell in love with this beautiful state and made it our home. After six years of marriage, God blessed us with our beautiful daughter, Isabella, who is now 8. We love to travel, see family, hang out with friends, and volunteer at our church.
My name is Sharon Winfield and I have been blessed to live in lovely Franklin for 21 years. I am married to Charlie and we have 3 children who are living in DC, Austin and San Antonio. I have been a member of Christ Community Church for 15 years and came to know Christ when I was 18. I love working with Preschool age children and know that this is time when a foundation of learning begins. I taught a 4 year class when my children were in preschool and starting 1st grade. I have also taught Preschool Sunday School for many years. I am excited to get to know your child and show God’s love to them. This is my second year at Mustard Seed Preschool and I feel the love of community just attending the orientation.
Ashley Stamps & Leslie McCaskey
I’m Ashley Stamps and I am thrilled to be teaching 5s at Mustard Seed! This is my first year to be apart of this wonderful school. My father was in the Marine Corp so I have moved all over the world. I graduated from Western Kentucky University where I earned my degree in education. I then moved to Nashville where I met my husband of eight years. We have two children. A son in first grade and a daughter who attends MSP. I love to run, spend time with family and friends, and attend sporting events. I look forward to watching the young minds and hearts of children grow. I’m excited to see what this year holds and find the joy in everyday!

In addition to being working with kids at MSP, I serve on the advisory board and work with the administration team on the website and social media.
Delyn Redmond & Beth Hamric
My name is Delyn Redmond. I have been teaching for the better part of 30 years…and I’ve loved every minute of it! I speak “5 year old,” and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have been at MSP since we opened the doors in 2004 (they can’t get rid of me). I have a BS degree in Education from the University of Montevallo. I enjoy playing at Interior design, sewing, and beading. I love my faith, family, and football in ranking order. I have 3 amazing children and a wonderful husband Charley who works for Show Hope. We are strong advocates for orphans and adoption. We pray for the day when every child has a forever family.
My name is Beth Hamric. I have lived in Georgia all of my life until moving to Tennessee(October 2018) because of my husband’s career. Todd and I met in college and have been married for 32 years. We have three children; twin boys, Phillip(24) and Andrew(24) and our daughter, Mari Hart(17). My degree is in Early Childhood Education where I have over 20 years experience working with children.
