Degrees and Certifications:
Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
My name is Mr. Moe. I am the Social Worker at Benjamin E. Mays IB World School. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with both the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the State of Minnesota Education Department. I hold a Masters Degree from the University of Minnesota. Since 1995, I have worked with young people and their caregiver(s) in a variety of settings throughout the Twin Cities metro area.
My work at Benjamin E. Mays gives me the opportunity to help our students learn and grow in a safe, caring and structured educational environment. I provide integrated interventions to support students, their families and school staff by designing situations for success. I create situations to help model appropriate behaviors, problem-solving skills and academic growth for students. I facilitate the development and overall unique potential of each student, while collaborating with teachers to help foster healthy and participating members of our community now and in the future.
Getting to know students changes how they perform!
Students, like most of us, are looking for a place to feel connected. When students feel personally connected, most young people (like adults) change their behavior and make positive choices that benefit one and all.
Providing a welcoming environment for students is critical. At Benjamin E. Mays IB World School we have established a tradition of excellence and achievement, and together staff and students share well-connected relationships.
It is my pleasure to work in this space.
