Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Magarelli

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!
