Resources Role of the Counselor Student Support

Hello, my name is Mrs. Farwell (pictured left) and I am the School Social Worker/8th Grade Counseling Liaison at RMS.  The best part of my job is supporting students and collaborating with staff.  I enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends.  I have a husband, two children and a Pug named Zoe.  My favorite sports teams are KC Royals/Chiefs and KU Jayhawks.


Please feel free to say hi when you see me in the hallway or in your classroom!

Together WE are Russell Middle School. 

Grade 6 Counselor

My name is Cari Hagemoser and I am the 7th -grade counselor. I am so excited to see what this school year will bring! You will seem me in the hallways, at lunch, at Craft Club, and even in some of your classes, feel free to say hi at any time or come down to the Counseling office if something is on your mind! The best part of my job is to see how much growth students have had from year to year and helping the students be successful while learning the ins and outs of Middle School.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my husband. My husband Kevin and I love doing activities outdoors, traveling, cheering on the Huskers, and cooking together. This year, we will welcome a baby boy into our lives.

Grade 7 Counselor
My name is Stefanie Lorenzen (pictured in the middle) and this is my 9th year at Russell Middle School as a School Counselor. Before I came to Russell, I was a Social Studies teacher at Millard West High School for 5 years.

I am very involved in our school. I coach Cross Country, sponsor our Fitness Club and am one of the Student Leadership Team sponsors.

Outside of school, I lead an active lifestyle. I enjoy running and working out. I love to travel and read books. My husband and I enjoy watching football together and trying different restaurants. I have 3 daughters and a son in law.

Middle School is an exciting, scary, challenging, memorable time in your life. The best part is that every day YOU get to decide what kind of day it will make it a good day. And remember, life doesn't get better by chance, it gets better by change! If you want something, make it happen!
