WORKING IN A SCHOOL2important that we know what is expected of us in these environments and how to work well with others in different roles. Currently, I work as a behavior technician and mostly work in-home so I do not have the experience of working in a school. So doing my own research is going to be crucial to successfully working in the school setting. I have to understand that working in a school will include collaborating with many other personalities. Being aware of my personality style will also be helpful to effectively communicate with others in the collaborative environment. As a BCBA, my role can be different depending on where I was hired. I could be working from the district of the school or working through an agency. Although my responsibility is the same, I may have different ways of being able to perform my role and either could limit/extend resources from within the school. I must be aware and be prepared for any of these different aspects that effect my role before going into the school setting. Preparing to Enter the SchoolI can enter the school through many different avenues. The school could have hired me directly or I could be from an outside agency coming into the school. I must consider the roles of the the educators as well as others involved in the collaboration.
