Meet Mrs. McLellan
Welcome to our Mount Vernon School counseling page! My name is Allison McLellan and I am the school counselor. I live in St. Petersburg, I am married and have been blessed with two daughters of my own. Being an educator has always been a great passion of mine. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education K-6 and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Prek-12. Prior to becoming a counselor, I taught Kindergarten, 1st grade and 3rd grade. I also have experience as a Counselor/Staff Developer at the Middle School level. I feel privileged to be the counselor at Mount Vernon and I love working with our students. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns. My door is always open and I am here to help!
Your partner in your child’s education,
Our Guidance Program
Every student at Mount Vernon will have a guidance lesson in their class once or twice a month focusing around the C2C word of the month. In addition to classroom guidance, our counselor also provides small group counseling on a referral basis. The groups are designed to help students with anger management, self-control, grief and social skills to name a few. Mrs. McLellan also provides individual counseling and has resources to help refer outside of school to a licensed mental health counselor when needed.
Reach out to our Guidance Counselor for how you can support her guidance lessons at home by connecting the lesson between home and school!
