Position: Behavior Intervention Specialist
What led you to your current position: Before coming to Seneca I was bartending/serving for several years. I wanted to have a job where I could work directly with people and help them gain tools to help themselves heal. I was interested in working in a school because I have a passion for learning. I started off as an SSC at Destiny Middle School and now am getting to work more in depth with students and teachers as a BIS.
Fun Fact/Quote: I love lifting weights! Doing heavy squats are my favorite.
What does your average day look like: I spend lots of time checking in with different students and setting goals with them. Some check-ins mean walking with a student and talking about strategies to combat anxiety, others look like an emotional check-in and setting a specific academic goal for the day. I meet with teachers and collaborate with them about students and other issues in their classrooms. I also run two weekly social emotional circles.
Why do you do this work: I want help others on their path to healing. I love partnering with people as they pick the right tools and open their own doors to success.
