BCBA

Yesterday morning the BACB released my BCBA certification number and ID card! It’s still taking time for it to sink it, but this definately helps. I am beyond excited to gain the title of BCBA. I am so excited that I am actually framing the certificate once it comes in the mail. I made it. Everything is falling together after so many years of dedication and sacrifice.

Gratitude

Throughout my education my husband has always been supportive. Supportive emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually. He would take care of the big expenses and the big burdens of life so I could pursue my education. He was always by my side, even when I was stupid and procrastinated on huge papers. He would bring me pizza and give me kisses for encouragement. He watched me graduate with a Master’s and thought, there now I get my wife back. Wrong. He stuck by my side through a crazy study your ass off prep course for passing the BCBA. He sacrificed trips, adventure, and years of his life for me. He waited with me until i found out my results. I am now a BCBA and I would like to thank my top supporter, my partner, my husband. I could not have done this without you. I love you. I am grateful for you.

It’s Official

Just found out that I am now certified as a Qualified Autism Services Practitioner! Whoo Hooo. One step closer. Oh, and I’m done with school. I have not received my degree yet, but my grades are all posted. 3.97 GPA, not bad for a Master’s (that boils down to ONE A- and the rest A’s). Looks like I get to add some letters behind my name.

Star Lipe, M.S., QASP

Impatient

I am being impatient. I want my final grade for my internship to post so I can get a partial reimbursement from work and I want my QASP certification to be finalized so I can get my bonus and be officially certified. I am checking both daily. Sometimes twice a day. I think I need to be more patient. Hmm…
