#MadeInFSUSD Alum Joins Team as Behavior Intervention Specialist
Ms. Lorena Vera joins FSUSD as our very own Rodriguez High School Graduate! Ms. Vera was previously employed as a Program Supervisor/Field Trainer for Gateway Learning Group. She also worked at Alcanzando Early Intervention Center as a Program Supervisor, as well as Creating Behavior Environmental Momentum as a Program Supervisor. Within the past five years she has worked with Applied Behavior Analysis Agencies, in California, Peru and Ecuador. She has been able to adapt her Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) skills amongst different cultures and settings. When asked what her long term goal was, Ms. Vera stated that she plans to be a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in the Solano County area and that she plans to continue working with the Early Intervention Center in Lima, Peru during her school breaks.
Adjunct Faculty Member, Ms. Jennifer Carvalho, M.Ed, BCBA, at Touro University included the following in her letter of recommendation:
“One of Ms. Vera’s strengths is verbal communication skills when working with others. A large component of the class required small group and large group discussions. Lorena was able to effectively communicate her knowledge and opinions while continuing to show respect for discussions and presentations. I could always count on Ms. Vera to contribute thought provoking comments and ask questions for clarification. Her performance in the classroom and passion for working within the field of Special Education made it apparent that she would be an asset to any district or company. I highly recommend Ms. Vera due to her experience, work ethic, and passion for the fields of Special Education and Applied Behavior Analysis.”
Ms. Vera received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2014 from California State University, Chico. She received her Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst Certification in March 2016, from the Florida Institute of Technology. Currently, Ms. Vera is attending Touro University, and is in the process of obtaining her Master of Arts Degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis. Her expected final completion date is set for December 2019.
