Tiffany Scott – Outpatient Mental Health Clinician

Tiffany started at The Children’s Guild Alliance in August 2018 as an Outpatient Mental Health Clinician and currently is placed in an elementary school in Baltimore County through the Guild’s School-based Mental Health program   

I’ve always wanted to work in a school, and there’s never a dull moment at work which makes the job interesting. Children are in school for almost half of their day, so I’m glad I can be another support person in their lives outside of family and regular school staff. Professionally, I’ve seen a change in the way I build relationships with other professionals in- and outside of my field. This job has challenged me to leave my comfort zone, which has helped me and the children I serve. My drive to continue working with this organization is the huge support I get from supervisors and staff. My supervisor and co-workers are a huge part of my growth and are the best motivating team ever. I love this job.

Raelene Meneses – Compliance and Credentialing Coordinator

Raelene started at The Children’s Guild Alliance in 2017 as a Speech and Language Pathologist/Internal Related Services Compliance Coordinator and has recently been promoted to Compliance and Credentialing Coordinator.

I enjoy the passion that my colleagues have for the children.  I specifically love working with my related services team to provide the best therapy to help our children live a successful life in school and in their social environments.  I am fairly new to this organization and system, but not new to the profession.  Working with new people has given me the opportunity to step back to learn and lead a new group of enthusiastic new professionals.  I stay for the kids and because of the strong relationships I’ve created with my co-workers.

Brittany Denise Branch – Special Education Kindergarten

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.
