Y5'S & KINDER GRADE SPECIALIST

SIERRA

This is Ms. Sierra’s seventh year with M&M. Her love for the students is evident in the way she interacts with and treats them. She is currently pursuing a career that involves working with children and is excited to use her creative and intuitive abilities to keep them involved, active, engaged, and happy to be at M&M. Sierra is an amazing teacher and writer! She uses best practices in all her well thought out lessons and teaches her students to be independent thinkers and problem solvers. The students and parents love her!

1ST & 2ND GRADE SPECIALIST/ COMMUNICATIONS

Sydnee

Sydnee is entering her third year working with M&M. She currently goes to Baker College, majoring in psychology, to obtain her bachelor's degree. Her time with the students was unfortunately cut short due to the pandemic after her first year, so it was nice to reestablish and build relationships when everyone came back. Sydnee feels that working with M&M has been amazing and believes the experience will be helpful towards her career in the future. She loves spending time with the students, laughing, playing games, while also helping them advance in their own lives. Sydnee also assists with parent communication during the day since Ms. Susan is busy with her third-grade classroom from 8-3.

Camryn just joined the team and is currently pursuing her degree in education. She loves to go on runs and hang out with her friends in her free time. Her favorite food is sushi, and her favorite color is pink. She also loves the outdoors and spending time with her family.

1st - 3rd Grade Specialist

Ruth

Ruth is also a new addition to the team, but she joined us after hearing her husband (Mr. Josh) rave about the kiddos and his awesome job at M&M for a year! Ruth loves the outdoors. She enjoys hunting and swimming, as well as playing softball and volleyball on her church’s teams. Ruth loves to hang out with friends and family, whether it’s being outside or playing video games (with her hubby!). She also loves to do artsy things like drawing or painting. Ruth is an avid animal lover, especially puppies and kittens. She always does her best to help where she can, like volunteering to help with the children at her church.

3RD-4TH GRADE SPECIALIST

ADDIE

Adelyn Bhavsar currently attends Madonna University. She’s a sophomore, majoring in accounting. Addie believes that being a college student and working with M&M is great! Although she just started last year, it is easily the best job she’s ever had (her words!). Addie loves learning about the students’ interests and being able to connect with them. She looks forward to another great year with her students and the team at M&M.

5th-6th Grade Specialist

josh

Puppeteer, astronomer, part-time adventurer, lightsaber and fencing enthusiast, Lord of the Rings fanatic, gamer to the core and professional goofball: Mr. Josh has been with M&M for one year.  He is dedicated to making sure each and every student knows their value, feels valued, loved, accepted, and encouraged to chase their dreams.  Mr. Josh wants every student to realize their potential and that education isn’t just important, it can be fun and quite exciting! So, reach for the stars (just, uh, avoid Betelgeuse for the time being- that one’s looking like it’s gonna blow up soon)!

Enrichment Specialist 

nic

Mr. Nic just joined our team but has been working in childcare for about 13 years. He is currently attending classes at multiple institutions for a variety of degrees and certificates. Nic loves all Detroit sports but his heart bleeds for the Lions and Wings. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, cooking, cleaning, and spending time with his dog (and his new wife!). Go Blue!
