• Scott Kuhnert, M.A. Professional Counseling; M.A. Sociology


    I have been a professional Guidance Counselor in the Hazelwood School District since 1999. During my tenure in Hazelwood, I have served at every grade level, including elementary, middle and high school.  I started my career working for a community mental health agency in Illinois as a Drug Prevention Specialist, then moved on to teach middle school Social Studies in Louisiana, Missouri before serving for Hazelwood School District as a guidance counselor.


    I grew up on a farm in Ava, IL and started a semi-professional career as a guitarist and singer at the age of 14.  I still perform regularly with the band “The Coal Jimmys” and also own a guitar amplifier company called Longbeard Amplification.


    My wife also serves as a 2nd grade teacher in  the Hazelwood School District and my daughter attends high school in Waterloo, Illinois where we live in a 170 year-old home.   


    My desire as a guidance counselor is simply to help each and every student achieve their true potential.  Please feel free to contact me at 314-953-4708 or email at wkuhnert@hazelwoodschools.org.
