Tiffin Elementary Counselor Services

  • Hello! My name is Brandi Wineland and I have the privilege of serving as a school counselor at Tiffin Elementary School in the Clear Creek Amana School District. I started my career as a school counselor at West Marshall Middle School and have very much enjoyed the transition to elementary learners at Tiffin the past three years. As a school counselor, my role is to implement a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes and enhances student achievement. I am particularly passionate about engaging with our students individually, in small group settings, and through classroom lessons. I value each of our students at Tiffin and enjoy helping our students achieve their fullest potential academically and personal/socially. I love encouraging students to embrace their uniqueness and believe in their strengths. It's rewarding coming to work each day knowing our students work hard to continue developing as individuals. 

    As I am delighted to support each of our students each day, I also greatly enjoy being able to collaborate with our amazing staff, parents & community of Clear Creek Amana. It's amazing what opportunities the CCA community has to offer each of our students and I am very grateful to be part of this wonderful family.

    Here are many of the programs we implement at Tiffin Elementary to meet our student needs:

    • Second Step- Second Step Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) gives students the tools to excel in and out of the classroom. Our easy-to-teach program garners outstanding reviews from educators who’ve noticed schoolwide improvement and see even the most challenging students make progress in emotion management, situational awareness, and academic achievement.
