Ms. Alicia Funes

I have been a member of the Leyden staff since 2015. Prior to coming to Leyden, I completed my school counseling internship at Maine West High School. In additon to working with mainstream students, I am presently one of the English Language Learner counselors and enjoy learning about all of my students' cultural backgrounds. I am also one the Junior Varsity Cheerleading coaches at Leyden, which allows me to continue to develop my love for the sport. Lastly, I sponsor Mindfulness club and On Common Ground.  

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my family and friends, specifically my neice and nephew. I also enjoy working out, scuba diving, traveling, PIZZA and enjoying a good laugh.
