My skill-set and industry expertise are comprehensive and up-to-date. I will make it my top priority to see that my ability working with adolescent with behavior issues is done well and efficiently. My career has also seen its share of achievements; while working as a program coordinator at Aliviane, I have made it a priority to assist families and their children in realizing the importance of making an effort to try and make changes in their lifestyles. I have been working in the counseling field for over 5 years dealing with behaviors and substance use.
I have learned and accomplished a great deal in my 5 years of working with adolescents. One of my proudest moments to date occurred while I was a counselor at Aliviane. In this capacity, I was responsible for conducting screenings, assessments, treatment plan, discharges, conducting groups as well as individual sessions. On one occasion, I assisted a family where the adolescent and his mother were at constant conflicts with each other, which led to them developing a productive mother and son relationship
I believe myself to be an excellent alternative teacher candidate for Terrace Hills. During my time working with adolescents, I have learned a great deal and achieved a number of goals. One of my highest achievements was starting my Masters in Social Work This led to a better understanding of just what I want out of life, which in turn has provided me the skills necessary to help adolescents with PTSD, behavior and substance use issues understand they have a chance to be a success in life by changing their way of handling problems. I am motivated, task-oriented, and efficient, and my knowledge of dealing with different behaviors is comprehensive and current. My background in counseling and training in case management would make me a valuable asset to Terrace Hills.
My enthusiasm and commitment to excellence have served me well. I have extensive experience with dealing with adolescents, families and the community. Having had the chance has significantly developed my abilities to assist adolescents with different behavioral issues.
I have a life time teacher's certificate for grades 1-8 with a major in history.
