Our Teachers

Alexis Stefani

Ever since she was a child, Alexis knew she wanted to be a teacher. Alexis graduated from High Point University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. But after accepting a pre-k teaching position, she quickly realized how much she loved teaching early childhood. Alexis believes in creating a safe, caring community where children can blossom and grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Every child is unique and as an educator she strives to develop each child’s skills, strengths, and interests to extend their learning. Alexis joined the Garden Preschool Cooperative in 2020.


Emily Sostre

After graduation from Branford Hall Career Institute, Emily initially launched her career as a medical assistant in pediatrics, which is where she realized her passion wasn’t in the medical field, but as an early childhood educator. Emily joined the Garden Preschool Cooperative in the Fall of 2020 as an assistant teacher. At Garden, Emily has developed a play-based philosophy to her teaching, and a strong belief in progressive education.
