Felline, Jessica [MC2008]
School Counselor at Anne Arundel County Public Schools
Health, Wellness and Fitness
As a National Board Certified Professional School Counselor, Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor and early childhood educator I have spent many years providing a safe and supportive environment that promotes the healthy growth and development of children and families in a variety of settings. For the past 10+ years I have been working with children both formally and informally; I have served as a tutor, camp counselor, babysitter, nanny, early childhood educator and school counselor. I have a strong understanding of children’s needs at each developmental stage and am able to assist them with any circumstances across academic, social/emotional as well as career domains.
During my years at Broadneck High School I was able to effectively manage a caseload of nearly 400 students and work collaboratively with a variety of school stakeholders to ensure the needs of my students were met. I have also worked with a number of students in crisis as well as their families, referring them to the appropriate resources.
I am dedicated to establishing and maintaining a lifestyle that is rooted in a strong moral and ethical foundation. I do not shy away from tough conversations and I firmly believe in the importance of open, honest lines of communication. I strive to model a healthy, active lifestyle. I encourage children to recognize their strengths, embrace their interests, explore their creativity and understand the importance of physical and mental balance.
I am a member of the Potomac & Chesapeake Association for College Admissions Counseling and American Counseling Association. I completed my M. Ed from Loyola University Maryland as well as a B.A from Manhattan College. I also became a National Board Certified Counselor in 2012 and a Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor in the Spring of 2013.
