Mr. Javier Vasquez

I began my counseling career at Leyden in 2014. I serve as the AP coordinator for West Leyden, member of the boys’ and girls' soccer coaching staff, and Service Club sponsor. Prior to working at Leyden, I was a school counselor at Morton West High School. I love working here and cannot picture myself being elsewhere. I enjoy coming to work every day and connecting with students. I take pride in that knowing I am making a positive impact on student’s outlooks regarding their educational and post-secondary goals. I am a member of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC). I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am a passionate Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, White Sox, and Chivas de Guadalajara fan.
