Kathleen Tumelty Felice is a professor of education and psychology, teaching Historical Foundations of Education, Educational Psychology, and Child and Adolescent Psychology.  She is the Coordinator of the Education Program, working to ensure seamless transfer to four year colleges and universities.  She is also Service Learning Coordinator, as she believes service to our community is an integral component of education and career success.  She works with local schools, organizations, and community shareholders to create more effective teachers, employees, and community members. 

Kate Tumelty Felice started her career as a major crimes and narcotics detective.  While she loved her job and helping others in that way, life continued to drive her toward teaching, and eventually she decided on a path more proactive than reactive.  She has taught at various levels, and truly believes that learning is a reciprocal process and should be fun and engaging no matter the age or level.  To that end, she continues her own learning as a student, and is currently working on legislation and other initiatives to promote an integrative and holistic approach to prioritizing the well-being of kids in all facets of child care and advocacy.  She has served on various college and community councils and committees, and has spoken nationally on issues including anti-bullying legislation and innovative teaching methods.

Tumelty Felice loves classes that are interactive and dynamic.  Her students inspire her every day with their ability to rise above adversity and embrace challenge with open and diverse perspectives.  She is certain that CCC students are the essence of change, and considers being a part of this tangible hope both a privilege and responsibility.  Her own children have shown her exactly how much she doesn't know, which amuses and fascinates her every day. 

If you are interested in becoming a teacher, embracing service, or even if you really aren't quite sure what your path should be, she hopes to help. Her office is on the second floor of the Academic Building.
