Welcome to CCE

  • Welcome to Clear Creek Elementary!  My name is Matthew Leeman and I am honored to serve you as the PK-5 Principal of this building.  I am entering my 5th year here at CCE and thoroughly enjoy being a part of the fast growing district of Clear Creek Amana.  

    I originally began my career as a Kindergarten teacher in the Postville CSD.  I served in that role along with being a First Grade teacher and Fourth Grade teacher for a total of 5 years before pursuing my administrative degree through the University of Northern Iowa.  I then served as a Dean of Students and 6-12 Principal at Postville for two years.  From there I made my way to Gladbrook-Reinbeck CSD and served as the 9-12 Principal for 3 years and a K-5 Principal for 1 year as well.  I joined CCA in the summer of 2014 and currently reside in Cedar Rapids with my wife and two sons.  

    Family involvement, cooperation, and support are three important components in the success of your child’s education. Staff members encourage positive family involvement and seek family support and cooperation in the education of students. Our main objectives of educating your child includes academic learning, social and emotional learning, and character education. With these three domains working simultaneously, your child will be ensured to a successful future. We can do that by providing your children with up-to-date, research-based curriculum, opportunities to practice and learn, and continuous communication with you as parents.  If you need anything at all please let me know and I can be reached easily by email at mattleeman@ccaschools.org.  I look forward to serving you and your children. 

    Thanks for being a part of our school,

    Matthew Leeman
    PK-5 Principal
