Staff Highlight! LT South Lyon, Marla Sherman

Hello! My name is Marla Sherman and I am currently the Interim Lead Infant Teacher at The Learning Tree South Lyon! I have been working at the Learning Tree for around four months now, and I absolutely love it!

My love for early childhood education began in my teens when I began working at an in-home daycare run by my neighbor. This opportunity really shaped my passion for education, as well as my love for caring for young kids. After working as a nanny and at multiple daycares, I decided to go into education as a career. I graduated from Michigan State University in December of 2018 with a degree in History Education. This degree combined my love for education and history all in one! Following graduation I began working at my aunt’s daycare and it reminded me of how much I love working with younger children.

After working part time in another daycare and in food service, I was contacted by the Learning Tree South Lyon for an interview! I was so excited! I remember walking into the building that September morning for the interview, and there was such a warm and welcoming feeling. When I found out I had gotten the job of Assistant Toddler Teacher, I was smiling ear to ear!

After a few weeks of working here, I was approached by Paula about taking on the role of Social Media Resident Expert. I love that I get to send families fun updates about what is going at our center! Recently, I have taken on the role of Interim Lead Infant Teacher. I am so excited about this new role, and I love everything about it!

I am honored and thankful for being given the opportunity to grow in the Learning Tree. There are so many things to love about working at the Learning Tree, but the thing I love the most is the friendships that you make with co-workers, kids, and families! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of the Learning Tree family!
