~ Meet Our Chief Charlo Counselors ~

Hello! My name is Felicia (Fey) Reynolds and the students at Chief Charlo know me as Ms. Fey. I started out this school year as a School Counseling intern at Chief Charlo. Good news; I will continue to provide school counseling services to the wonderful students at Chief Charlo until the end of this school year by teaching guidance lessons in the classroom and by providing students with additional support when I meet with them in either small groups or individually! I have been working with young people since graduating from MSU in 2009 and

my work has brought me all over the world including the Northern Mariana Islands and China.


Iā€™m happy to be back in my home state and not far from where I grew up ā€“ down the Bitterroot. I will be working at Chief Charlo on Mondays from 8:00 am ā€“ 12:00 pm, Tuesdays from 12:00-4:00 pm and 8:00 am ā€“ 4:00 pm on Thursdays. Being a school counselor at Chief Charlo has been very rewarding so far and I look forward to the rest of this school year here, working with and receiving supervision from Mrs. Donisthorpe (Mrs. D.).

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact myself, Kelley Donisthorpe, or Ms. Fey at 406-728-2400 ext. 4976, or by email kdonsithorpe@mcpsmt.org or freynolds@mcpsmt.org .
