Hi everyone! I'm Allison Mears and I am in my 14th year with DMESC. I love my job!
I worked for seven years as the Early Childhood Behavior Specialist working with teachers and families of children in preschool. The past seven years have been spent working with Kindergarten-12th grade students/teachers/parents as the Behavior Support Specialist. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Before coming to work for the coop, I worked in private practice and at Wadley Hospital as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I'm a lifelong resident of Foreman. My husband, Shane, and I have one son, Lawson. When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my family, being outdoors, and watching the Arkansas Razorbacks!
As the Behavior Support Specialist, I serve all 12 of our districts. Behavior support services are available to children in the special education program. A behavior request can be submitted by any district administrator (superintendent, principal, or special education supervisor) or parent. Services include (but are not limited to):
I find my job challenging, but very rewarding. I love hearing success stories from students, parents, and teachers. Please feel free to contact me any time!
