Meet Haeil Q., Behavior Intervention Implementor
At Cross Country Education, we’re honored to work with educational professionals who are passionate about helping students thrive. We love to share our appreciation for these educators and pass along their insights to inspire others with similar interests. This time, we’re proud to turn the spotlight on behavior intervention implementor Haeil Q. Here, Haeil shares what motivated her to become a behavior intervention implementor, what she enjoys about working with Cross Country Education and our partner schools, and what advice she has for others considering a career in behavior intervention.
Why did you decide to work in special education and behavior intervention?
I have always wanted to help others. I started out with ABA [applied behavior analysis] therapy after graduating college. After a few years, I went on to working with adults with mental illness, which was very rewarding. However, my heart was always in working with children. So, after becoming a mom myself, I really felt the need to immerse myself in working with children again.
What do you like about working with Cross Country Education and the schools Cross Country Education partners with?
I love the fact that I get to meet different students and teachers. I thrive in constant change of environment, so working with different schools is perfect for me.
What kind of advice would you give to those starting out in behavior intervention implementation?
If I would pick one piece of advice to give to those starting out in the field, I would say be the BII [behavior intervention implementor] you would want to have for yourself or for your family. If you leave at the end of the working day knowing you did your best and treated people as you would want to be treated, the job becomes that much more rewarding.
We’re grateful to Haeil for her dedication to her students and schools – and for being such a valuable part of the Cross Country Education team!
