Resources Role of the Counselor Student Support

My name is Mrs. Hagemoser and I am the 6th-grade counselor (pictured right). This past summer I got married and now I am ready for an awesome school year! You will see me in the hallways, at lunch, and in your classes; I also help with the Craft Club and Circle of Friends. I am excited to get to know the incoming 6th graders and be there to help for a successful school year! I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching HUSKER football, cooking, and spending time outside. My HOPE for this upcoming school year is that we have some fun and get to celebrate successes.

Grade 6 Counselor
My name is Stefanie Lorenzen (pictured in the middle) and this is my 8th 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, am a facilitator for Circle of Friends 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 Ryan and I enjoy watching football together and trying different restaurants. I have 3 daughters: Kaitlyn is 20, Laynee is 14, and Lucy is 3.
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!
