 Welcome to Pioneer Elementary Counseling Page!!!!!!


Hello!!! I would like to introduce myself; I am Gus Winter, Pioneer Elementary School Counselor. I have been working in this position at Pioneer since January of 2018. In Prior years, I worked as a Police Officer, School Resource Officer (K-12), and Mental Health counselor.

At Pioneer, I provide support to students, parents, and staff. This support may include: school counseling classroom lessons (All Social Emotional Learning (SEL) topics such as: Anti-bullying, Conflict Resolution, self-regulation, Character traits, and Empathy just to name a few.), short-term counseling to students, referrals for long-term support to appropriate internal and external agencies, collaboration with families/teachers/ administrators/ community for student success, advocacy for students at individual education plan meetings, and 504 plan meetings.

It is our passion at Pioneer Elementary to support our students and parents in building the foundation for their future academic, career and social / emotional development.
