My primary jub duty is to collaborate with the School Counselor to develop, implement, and evaluate behavioral strategies that enhance the students' school performance academically, socially, and emotionally. Some of my job description consists of the following: developing Behavioral Contracts, developing Functional Behavioral Analysis Assessments with students, and developing Behavioral Intervention Plans consisting of goals, objectives, and interventions to help students learn and display positive behaviors and deter negative behaviors. I also consult with teachers regarding students' behavior and observe and monitor students' behavior in the classroom setting, reward positive behaviors, schedule parent conferences when necessary, and provide individualized and/or group services to remediate inappropriate behaviors. In addition, I coordinate with the School Counselor to provide assistance as needed for the overall operation of the counseling program, advocating on behalf of students, and helping to promote student success.
