Ms. Kary

Hello Maxfield Families!
My name is Kary Kuenzli and I'm the licensed school counselor at Maxfield Elementary. I'm so excited to be working with you and your scholars! I'm passionate about supporting students to become their best selves by exploring their interests, while teaching them problem solving skills and how to advocate for themselves. School Counselors play an important role in your scholars' academic, social-emotional learning, and college/career readiness. I support all Maxfield scholars by:
  • coming into all classrooms every week to teach and learn together
  • small groups with topics focusing on: social skills, friendship, confidence, life changes, and academic skills
  • individual check-in's

My job is to make Maxfield a place where scholars feel safe, seen, and heard!

I earned my master's in education in School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin River Falls. My education journey began as a Reading Corps Tutor at an elementary school in Minneapolis Public Schools. From there, I worked as a Check & Connect monitor and most recently as a Behavior Dean. In my free time, I enjoy running, biking, and spending time with friends, family, and my dog Finnley. 
Please reach out if you have questions or concerns about your scholar. I'm looking forward to working together! Contact Ms. Kary at, call: 651-744-7644 or text: 612-405-9477
