Prince of Peace Preschool Staff
Diana Schultz, Preschool Director – Diana@poplargo.org
Diana Schultz is our Prince of Peace Preschool Director. She is a fourth generation Floridian, having grown up here in the Seminole/Largo area. She began her career in the early childhood education field as a two-year-old teacher and moved up to teach VPK. She then became an assistant director and learned everything she could in that position for the last few years! On top of being a full-time Director, wife, and mom of 4, she is also a full-time student at St. Petersburg College. Ms. Diana finds joy as she encourages the growth of our children in a creative environment while focusing on literacy along the way! She envisions this learning experience taking place on a foundation of faith, as she grew up in a faith-based school as well. Ms. Diana loves not only working with the students in her care but truly enjoys creating a relationship with the families of the children. She strives to make sure children, families, and teaching staff are all working as a cohesive unit to ensure the children at POP Preschool are reaching the goals set out for them!
Deb Marshall is one of our VPK teachers here at Prince of Peace Preschool. This year is the start of her 20th year teaching. She first started when her son was in preschool, now both of her children are grown adults. She has her CDA and has been teaching VPK for 6 years. She loves teaching the 4’s and 5’s and getting them prepared for the years of education they have ahead of them!

Crystal Cork is one of our three year old teachers here at Prince of Peace Preschool. She was born and raised in Florida – a true Floridian! Working with children has been her passion since she was young. She started working with children when she was 14 and hasn’t stopped 15 years later! Throughout the years, she has taught ages 1-5 years and for the last two years has been with our three year old class.
Stacy Hasse, Younger 3’s Teacher
Stacy Hasse is Prince of Peace Preschool’s young three’s teacher! She is originally from Chicago, Illinois, and she has three, amazing children and six, beautiful grandchildren. She has been teaching for over 20 years! She has been blessed to teach all ages and levels, including children with special needs and school-age children. Although her heart has always loved the two-year-old class, she was given the opportunity to expand her teaching skills when she was offered the young three’s classroom. She always strives to make a difference in the lives of children by providing a safe and encouraging environment. She feels so blessed to also be able to teach about God in our classrooms here at POP Preschool and loves getting to be a part of both the spiritual and educational pieces of her student’s lives!
Michelle McGinnis, Older 2’s Teacher
Michelle McGinnis has been in the early childhood education field since 2001. Teaching has always been a passion of Michelle’s and she thoroughly enjoys working with the 2-year-old age group. Even though sometimes the 2-year-old class can be extremely challenging, she believes it is incredibly rewarding to help this age group learn about themselves and others. She is ready for a great, new year that will be full of fun and educational experiences for her class of 2’s!
Priscilla has been in early childhood education for six years, where she has always been in two year old classrooms. She focuses on helping two year olds to learn emotional regulation.
