Interview with Belinda
Tell us about yourself
Hi! I am currently in my last semester of graduate school studying Applied Behavior Analysis in hopes of becoming a BCBA soon! I am from a small border town in Arizona and love visiting whenever I can. I enjoy going on day trips with friends and exploring new places around the city! One fun fact about me is that I am trilingual, I know English, Spanish, and Sign Language.
Why did you become a Registered Behavior Technician?
I always knew I wanted to work with children – they are just so fun to work with and it is so refreshing to see the world through their eyes! I became an RBT to help children improve their day-to-day lives by learning new daily skills and communication skills. I love seeing the progress they make day to day.
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being compassionate?
I would like to thank everyone who nominated me – this is so heartwarming, and I really appreciate it! I think my coworkers nominated me for always trying to check in on everyone and asking about how they are doing.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
What I love most about working at TEAM 4 Kids is the work environment and of course, the children I work with! Everyone at TEAM 4 Kids is so nice and always willing to help. It is so easy to talk to other disciplines and ask questions to learn more about other professions. The children I work with make my days so much brighter, I really do love coming to work every day and getting to do what I do for a living.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
If I had one wish, it would be to be fluent in all languages – how cool would that be?
