I am currently a behavioral consultant with a decade of experience in the classroom as a SPED assistant, research assistant, special education teacher of record, inclusion teacher, self-contained resource teacher, behavior coach, and PBIS committee chair.
Crazy. That's usually how my kids described me. I always told them it takes crazy to teach crazy.
"Thanks" from numerous kids with emotional and behavioral disorders. It didn't always come while I was their teacher, but usually afterwards. Although I regret having to leave the front lines for more of a consulting role, I feel I can still contribute to the education of kids with EBD by sharing the behavior analytic technologies I've worked to develop over the years.
