We’re back with our third installment of Leaders of the New Schools. This week, we’re excited to introduce Diana Bey, principal of Cornerstone Prep-Denver Campus in Frayser.


Diana Bey joined the Cornerstone Prep team as a founding Kindergarten teacher, later holding the position of Director of Curriculum and Instruction for Cornerstone Prep-Lester Campus. Diana previously taught at Veritas Classical school, where she facilitated and taught fourth grade students. Prior to this, Diana taught Kindergarten at a Memphis charter school and taught in Michigan.

Diana now serves as the Principal of Cornerstone Prep-Denver Campus in Frayser, which opens in August 2015. She has had the privilege of becoming an active member of the Frayser Exchange Club, attending meetings and getting to know the community of Frayser. She looks forward to learning more from the amazing families, students and community partners at Denver.

Diana graduated from Eastern Michigan University, where she majored in math and minored in science. She has a teaching certification in Michigan, where she is highly qualified K-5 and science 6-8, and Tennessee in Elementary K-6.

Diana brings a combination of passion, mission fit and experience to the school. When Diana saw the job posting for her original position with Cornerstone Prep, she told her husband, “This school describes my heart.” Diana added, “This will allow me to teach the way I believe teaching should be done in terms of format and structure. I look forward to spending years and years watching this school grow.”
