Ms. Felicia Coster

Hello JJL Students and Families! My name is Felicia Coster and I am beyond excited to begin my fifth year working with you as one of the school counselors! This will be my tenth year in education. I previously taught middle school science at a PreK-12 building in DePue, IL. I am ready to make this a great school year at JJL! I earned my bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Middle School Endorsement in 2011 from Eastern Illinois University. I attended Lewis University and completed my master's degree in School Counseling in December 2015.  I truly believe in lifelong learning and finished my second master's degree in Educational Adminstration this summer.  I love working with middle school students and assisting them in achieving greatness. It is such a unique time during their lives and I hope to make a positive impact on their futures. Besides my work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, being active, cheering on the Cubs, traveling, learning, and trying new things. I am most excited getting to work with the students, families, and staff of JJL.   Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance. I look forward to meeting all of you this year!

Our school counseling program recieved RAMP (Recognized ASCA Model Program) designation by the American School Counselor Assosciation in 2018.  This means that JJL is committed to delivering a comprehensive, data driven school counseling program.
