Hello, MMAEC families!
My name is Melissa Manning and I am beyond excited to serve this school community as the new Head of School! I am really looking forward to meeting all of you, continuing and expanding MMAEC’s many achievements and growing together as a partner in your child’s education.
My educational career began in Tampa, Florida as an elementary teacher for 11 years. My family and I moved to West Michigan a few years ago where I had the opportunity to support schools across the state as a K-3 Literacy Master Coach and Literacy Professional Development Facilitator! I have a B.A. from the University of South Florida and a Master’s in Education Leadership from Western Michigan University where I am continuing to learn and grow in the Education Specialist program.
My husband Jyronn and I have three kids: Makenzie is 12, Cassie is 6 and JJ is 4. I am also a proud dog mom to our pug Sampson. We love to spend time outside and stay busy with our kid’s various sports. I’m sure many of you can relate!
We will plan some sort of (responsible) summer event where we can spend time together as a school community. I look forward to meeting all of you there! More information to come on that.
Enjoy your summer – I can’t wait to hear about it!
