Carly Knauf

I volunteer/intern for the Beekman Therapeutic Riding Center as a therapeutic ridding instructor where I assist children with disabilities in riding horses using the techniques of natural horsemanship. The purpose of the program is to create an experience that is unique and enjoyable to the rider while also creating an atmosphere that will improve muscle tone, balance, develop confidence and a sense of responsibility within the rider. Each rider's needs and abilities are assessed before riding, then a lesson plan is established and tailored to the student. Lessons are always being updated as the rider progresses. I have experienced first-hand the benefits and rewards this program brings and I feel fortunate to be affiliated with this program.

Kimberly Mathiot

I am responsible for editing all items and documentation associated with Michigan standards-based assessment for K-12 students throughout the state. I also work on other publications, wherever I am needed, to make sure that the copy we are distributing is accurate and valid for the purpose it is intended. I have been in education for the past 17 years, and have worn a variety of hats – as a high school teacher, a researcher, a data analyst, consultant, and a provider of professional development. This job is a good fit for me, because of the requirement to understand state assessments, which I am very well-acquainted with, and also some knowledge of desk-top publishing and graphic arts. My undergraduate degree was in Computer Graphics and I have taught graphic design on the community college level. I found my job on the State government website, and applied for it in March. I got the call for the 1st interview in May, when I had mostly forgotten about the application. I was getting pretty discouraged at this point, so everything worked out for the best. I like my job, because I have the potential to impact educational reform on the policy level, and it is one of my goals to make the assessments and documents we produce as easy to read, consistent and efficient for the end-user as  possible.

Kyle Mitchell

As the culinary instructor I am in charge of 2 classes with an enrollment of 24 students per class. The students are high school juniors and seniors from school districts in Ingham County. As members of the class they learn culinary arts, baking and pastry, and entry level management techniques. I chose Lansing for two reasons. 1) Lansing is centrally located between my wife’s and my family. 2) Before my current job I was a manager for Red Lobster. That job allowed me to live in multiple cities across the state. Being in Lansing allows us to travel relatively easy to those, or any other location in the state. My passion is food; I have loved working with it since a young age. This was further influenced in high school while attending a career center in Van Buren County. Now I am in charge of a class much like the one that influenced me so much. There are many many reasons why I love my current job one of which is a very strong support from other staff members and administration, and another is knowing that what I am doing will ultimately help to shape my students career and life plans. I can recall many times in my career when I have used what I learned in high school because it was so relevant. Having that in the back of my mind always ensures that my students receive a high quality education that they can use right away and 10 years down the road.
