Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Arlene Magarelli and I am Sterling's itinerant school counselor. I am very excited and looking forward to an outstanding school year with both students and families. I will be at Sterling part-time, and I will facilitate classroom guidance lessons and small group counseling sessions and work individually with students.
Here is a little about me: I received my Bachelor's degree from the college of William and Mary, Master's degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University, and a Post Graduate Certificate in School Counseling from Regent University.
This is my second year as a school counselor as I made a career switch. After graduating grad school I started working as mental health clinician with Fairfax County Community Services Board, but then I decided to go back to school as I wanted to be in the school system. I am thrilled to be part of the Sterling team.
When not working, I love spending time with my husband, kids, family and friends. I have 4 kids, three boys and one girl, and they keep me very busy. I also enjoy running, traveling, and baking cookies with my daughter.
Again, I am thrilled to be part of the Sterling community! I am here to help students have a fantastic school year!
