Welcome/September 2021 Update

Hello and WELCOME to the Counselor's Corner! My name is Tiffany Hogue and I am the new School Counselor at Uinta Meadows Elementary. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts from Weber State University in Child and Family Studies in 2010 followed by earning my Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling from Utah State in 2012. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in both Wyoming and Idaho and I pull from a variety of different experiences. I have found that working with children is my passion and returned to gain a post graduate certificate in play therapy from the University of Wyoming in 2020. 

 

The first month of school has been absolutely amazing! I am able to get into classrooms to teach all kids basic skills to help prevent future issues and make going through the hard stuff of life a bit easier. For the month of September, our focus was on growth mindset. You might hear your kiddos speaking some of the growth mindset language. We have covered topics like “The Power of Yet", basic brain care (sleep hygiene, nutrition, movement, etc), "Bubble Gum Brain" which is an awesome story by Julia Cook about keeping our brain flexible in order to grow, making mistakes and recognizing what we can versus what we cannot control. 

 

If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. I am able to briefly meet with children for school counseling should a need arise- however, please note that in this capacity, longer term or more intense therapy is not provided. 

 

I am so excited for this year!

Tiffany
