Gretchen Pederson

School Counselor with the Boyceville School District in Boyceville, Wisconsin


The average teenager spends more time in front of a device’s screen than sleeping. As technology becomes more prevalent, the development of life skills are being delayed or lost. Gretchen Pederson discusses what she sees happening to the youth she works with as a school counselor and why she sponsored an evening for her community to discuss the effects of screen time on teenagers. Gretchen is a School Counselor with the Boyceville School District in Boyceville, Wisconsin. The film she showed to her community, Screenagers Next Chapter, can be previewed at https://www.screenagersmovie.com/about-screenagers-next-chapter
