Mr. Gregory Althoff
My name is Greg Althoff and I am excited to be a part of Hutto Nation. From the moment I stepped foot on campus, it was obvious to me why Cottonwood Creek Elementary is “legendary.” The dedicated staff works hard to create a safe, positive, and innovative learning environment for our students. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with our talented teachers and supportive parents, as we work together to inspire a diverse community of learners.
Education has always been a part of my life. I grew up in a family of educators. I have fond memories of helping out my mom in her classroom. Now, as an adult, I find myself helping my wife out in her classroom. I am sure our 1 year old son will have many of the same experiences I had as a child.
Over the past 12 years, I have had the pleasure of working with spectacular teachers and students in the communities of El Paso and Del Valle,Texas. During that time, I served as a fourth and fifth grade teacher, an instructional coach, and an assistant principal.
In 2006, I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. After a few years in the classroom, I graduated with a Master of Arts in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education in 2015 from the University of Texas at El Paso.
Curriculum and Instruction is my passion. Students deserve to have teachers that take the time to inspire critical thought and promote social & emotional learning. The teachers at CCES have a reputation for motivating and pushing students forward. Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of the “Legendary” Cottonwood Creek community.
