I have been working in elementary and middle schools for almost three years. Prior to where I am at right now, I had worked at residential, clinic, and community-based settings for a little while and found that district work is very different from the rest.

- Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
- The Three Tier Model for prevention
