What do you like most about your job? I love being able to help children to be the best them they can be. I also love the autonomy my company offers me, as well as working with divergent behavioral situations and contexts. It keeps me on my toes, and I love it.
What do you like least about your job? Sometimes figuring out how to actually hear and discover what the child needs can be difficult. It is not always easy for a child to communicate what they are going through. Sometimes they don’t even really know. In addition, it is not uncommon for some of the home environments to be less than healthy, which can be tough on the heart strings.
Beyond your bachelor’s degree, what additional education or specialized training have you received? I have no other degrees besides my bachelor’s in psychology. I am currently working on my board certified assistant behavior analyst (BCaBA) certificate. I am also hoping to go back to school at some point to become a board-certified behavior analyst. I’ll need my master’s degree for that.
