Degrees and Certifications:
University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire CMBT - Music Therapy Board Certified
My name is Ms. Emily and I'm the music therapist for the self-contained special education classrooms and ECSE program here at Benjamin E. May IB World School. I have worked in this building since 2010! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2009 and sat for my board exam and license when I moved to Minnesota shortly after that.
My philosophy: Music can change the way a child feels, thinks, behaves and even learns. It's processed in many different parts of the brain and therefore is a great tool for creating connections for students of all ability levels and backgrounds. I truly believe music is an amazing gift that resonates with many children and supports their emotional and physical well-being while in the learning environment. Plus, it's so much fun!!!
