Hello, my name is Lyronna (Ronna) Fretz and I am one of two school counselors at Premier Arts & Science Charter School. I started working at the school Jan 2019. I received my bachelor’s degree in social work at Eastern University. After working in the field for over a decade I went back to school and earned my master’s degree in school counseling.
I love working with the students and their families at Premier. I really enjoy working with elementary students and helping them to become the best students they can be. My goal is to be a resource for students, teachers, and parents so please let me know how I can help.
