Hi, I’m Alfred (AL) Gomes and I am excited to be the new Behavior Intervention Coordinator here at Gerber School. Go Rams!!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Chico State from the School of Social Work. I have been working with children, youth and families for the past 10+ years in a variety of settings, including: juvenile hall, child protective services, county outpatient, youth centers, elementary, middle, and high schools. I believe in positive change and providing opportunities for personal growth, skill development, and creating quality relationships with others.
I chose this career path due to my strong passion for helping children, youth and families not only enhance the quality of their relationships but to also increase quality of life, in-general. I believe this is possible through gaining insight into one’s own strengths, capacities, and abilities. I am strength-based, positive and enjoy SMART goal setting and problem-solving. I hope to be a valuable asset to the great team here at Gerber School by providing additional behavioral supports to faculty, staff, students, and families.
My NEU is University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Go Rebels!
