Brittany started working at The Children’s Guild Alliance in 2017 as a Therapeutic Behavioral Aide and is currently a Special Education Teacher in kindergarten at The Children’s Guild School of Prince George’s County.
There are many aspects of my job that I love, but the thing that I love best is making a difference in the lives of the families and children that I serve. Being able to track and experience their growth is something that I can’t pay for, it’s so valuable. I started out as a Therapeutic Aide where I grew professionally by learning about professional boundaries and ways to regulate and support students in using replacement behaviors. As a teacher I have learned to effectively use my voice to advocate for my students and myself and set academic goals for my students. I have also grown professionally by being able to work with seasoned teachers to come up with better strategies to teach and manage behaviors in the classroom.
