Hi Lightning Bolts! My name is Ms. Proietti (or Ms. P) and I am a full-time school counselor at ASFS. This year, I am working mostly with 3rd, 4th, & 5th grades. I grew up in Connecticut, and went to college at Syracuse University where I studied Psychology and Education. Go Orange!! I received my Master's Degree in School Counseling from John's Hopkins University in 2018, and I've been working at ASFS ever since! I love skiing, running, and reading in my free time. My favorite thing about ASFS is the care students and staff show for each other.
