Jobs Landed: 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.
