Return to: Elena Buttgereit's Mini Course
My name is Elena Buttgereit, and I am just three courses shy of completing the CDIT program!
I graduated from SUNY Geneseo in 2012 with my bachelor's in English Education with a concentration in creative writing. After graduation, I spent the next three years working as Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Binghamton University where I was responsible for recruiting students and reviewing applications. Today, I'm working as a 1:1 aide in a special education classroom in Agawam, Massachusetts; but, I am still actively pursuing full-time work in the classroom as an English teacher! I am also working to become certified to teach Math grades 5-12 over the next few months.
In my spare time, I can generally be found in the kitchen trying out new recipes; I'm particularly fond of cupcakes! I also enjoy curling up with a good book, playing volleyball, and snuggling with my cat, Clementine.
