STUDENTS CAN GAIN VALUABLE, PAID EXPERIENCE WHILE IN COLLEGE
Behavioral Dimensions, a private company based out of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, provides intensive services to children with autism and related disabilities. We are currently hiring undergraduate and graduate students from colleges and universities studying in a wide variety of fields. The skills our staff learn can be used with any child in any setting regardless of staff’s field of study or career path.
Many entry level jobs in the human services field require a degree and experience in order to be hired as a Mental Health Practitioner. We can assist in providing the required hours of experience while students are completing their degrees. In some cases, we are able to provide the training and supervision for internships and practicums.
We are looking to hire for positions throughout the Twin Cities metro, St. Cloud, Alexandria, Duluth, and the Iron Range areas. Part time and full-time positions are available.
We also currently have a job posting on St. Kate’s website. We are available to speak with individual students about employment opportunities with BDI.

The Education Department welcomes Heather Dowd who will be teaching Literacy and Learning Redefined in the Digital Age in our graduate program for licensed educators. Heather Dowd is an educator, author, presenter, and keynoter who loves science, design, and learning.

She currently enjoys leading professional development workshops helping teachers create engaging learning experiences for students.
Heather volunteers in the Cell Lab at the Science Museum of Minnesota to stay true to her inner science geek. Teaching English with the JET program in Kumamoto, Japan inspired her to become a teacher and the adventure hasn’t stopped. Heather is a Google for Education Certified Innovator and Trainer, Apple Distinguished Educator, and author of “Classroom Management in the Digital Age”. She believes that students should have access to current technology in order to connect to the world and be creative in ways that weren’t possible when she was in school. Outside of school, she likes to travel, take photos, play the piano, spend time with her family, and get in touch with her artistic side.
