Hi, I'm Steve Hazell and I'm a school counselor at Ripon High School. I've been at RHS since 2002 and it's been a wonderful experience. Before coming to RHS, I worked as a technical writer and in various human services related jobs before that. I have a Masters degree in Community Counseling from UW-Oshkosh, a Bachelors degree in Psychology from UW-Stevens Point, and an Associate degree in Electromechanical Technology from Fox Valley Technical Institute. I live in Oshkosh with my wife, Vivian, who works with children with autism. We have three children, all of them grown and out on their own. I like many kinds of music and try to see live performances as often as I can.

Hello, I’m Jolene Schatzinger, and I joined the Student Services team as a high school counselor in the 2016-2017 school year. Already, I am loving being part of the Tiger family. I am passionate about inspiring students to live out their academic and career aspirations, and it is something that I have shown throughout my career. Before joining the high school Student Services team with Steve Hazell and Jackie Lehman, I was a school counselor at Fond du Lac High School, an academic advisor at UW Oshkosh with Student Support Services (A TRIO Program), an outreach coordinator with the Ripon Area Chamber of Commerce, and a college admission counselor at both Ripon College, and before that, at Mount Mary University. I am a proud past 4-H member and adult volunteer, Kiwanian, and a lifetime member of the FFA. I am happily married to a Politics and Government professor at Ripon College, and that means there is never a dull conversation around the dinner table. We recently adopted a cat from an area shelter, and I enjoy exploring local businesses and restaurants. Most of all, I am looking forward to getting to know the Ripon High School students and families so that I can best serve the academic, social, and emotional needs of our RHS, LCHS, and Crossroads students. While I believe in being a resource for ALL students, I focus specifically on serving students with last names A through L. Please know that I am only an email (schatzingerj@ripon.k12.wi.us) or phone call away (920-748-4637).
