Sarah Eurich Kienitz, a teacher at the Michigan Department of Correction, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.

Now retired, Ms. Kienitz found more than four decades of success as an educator in various roles, most recently including as a teacher for general educational development teacher for the Michigan Department of Corrections for four years, where she also functioned as a librarian. During this time, she availed herself on behalf of inmates at a level one correctional facility as they sought to attain a basic education prior to their release or parole.

Prior to her work in corrections, Ms. Kienitz worked for several decades in a public school setting, having served as a fourth, fifth and sixth-grade teacher from 2012 until 2014 at the Saginaw Public School System. Additionally, she worked as a media specialist and librarian for the school district from 2007 to 2013. Likewise, Ms. Kienitz served at two different hospitals throughout the course of her career as a medical reference librarian.

Before embarking upon her professional journey, Ms. Kienitz sought to become a teacher largely due to the influence of her aunt and uncle, both of whom were also educators. Steering her ambitions accordingly, she studied at Central Michigan University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 1980, as well as a master’s degree in library science. Her subsequent accomplishments in the field were well-served by Ms. Kienitz’s keen sense of flexibility, as the landscape of education has changed drastically throughout the course of her career. Well-regarded as a standout example of her vocation, she was formally inducted into Who’s Who in American Education in 1989, and has been listed multiple times since then.

As she moves forward, Ms. Kienitz aspires to carry on with her efforts in serving as a tutor for her local community high school, particularly on behalf of those who struggle academically. While she has largely retired, she also plans to remain open to any employment opportunities that arise in the future.
