My daughter is 4 yr old n she goes to preschool.  I found out she freaks out with strange guys she doesn't know.  Cause she goes to a Lutheran preschool n Wednesdays they have Chapel n they have a different pastor each wk n the one last wk was tryin to involve the preschoolers n get up close to them n when he got near Makayla she started crying,coughing n breathing really hard.  She also does that too if the principal gets to close to her too.  She is fine with like her dad,both of her grandpas,other guys in the family or guy friends.  Is this normal?

All kids go through phases at different ages and around different subjects. If she is uncomfortable, I wouldnt make a big fuss out of it or anything. She will get better the longer she is around other people and realizes that all people are not a danger. If you think there is something more, I would have speak to someone. Honestly, without any further evidence I would say she is just figuring out what she is and is not comfortable with when it comes to strangers.

I also wanted to say my son is 5 years old and he has to get to know you and warm up to you.

Some children warm up easily and some don't.  I hope the people there don't try to pressure her, this would make her have negative reactions.

No her teacher has to tell them to back off a lil bit n then she is fine.

I agree with the other posters.  She's just learning her comfort boundaries.
