Betrearon Getachew Tezera '15 After graduating from Cornell, I earned a graduate degree in American Literature while working as a freelance journalist. Originally intent on pursuing a career in academia, I decided to take some time away from that very particular milieu to grow into myself a bit. Over the years, I've developed a hybridized skillset, thanks to apprenticeships and self-directed learning, that has allowed me to work for the Federal Government, first as an editor, and now as a senior technologist.

Amelia Brackett '18  Since graduating, I have taught middle school math at a charter school for low-income students in Brooklyn, NY. During my first two years as an educator, I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching Special Education. I now write the math curriculum for the 24 charter schools in my network. I also volunteer my time working at a suicide prevention hotline.


Hope to see you at this last alumni workshop this semester!
