Mrs. Szarek

Welcome!  My name is Mrs. Cindy Szarek, and I am the counselor at Russell School.  This is my 27th year in the Hazelwood school district.  Previously I taught 10 years at Russell School and 3 years at Jamestown School.  This is my 14th year as the school counselor.
I am married to my husband, Pete, and we have four children and seven grandchildren.  I love spending time with my family and enjoy traveling and reading in my spare time.  
My role as a school counselor is truly rewarding.  I enjoy working with children, parents, teachers, and the administrative team.  My belief is every child is unique and my personal mission is to help each child reach his/her maximum potential.  I look forward to continuing to form relationships and working with our students and families.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need assistance.  I'm wishing everyone an amazing year!
