Hi Bobcats! My name is Yenitza Guzman and I am a School Counselor at Back of the Yards CollegePrep! I have been working at BOYCP since 2017. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was an English teacher and I have been working in CPS since 2010. As a school counselor, I work with students in a variety of different ways by addressing social-emotional, college/career, and academic concerns.
I earned a Bachelors Degree in English from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2010 and a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Governors State University in 2015. Currently, I'm back at Governors State University as a Doctoral student with a focus in Counselor Education and Supervision. In case you can't tell, I LOVE school!
I have been married to my husband Ivan since 2016 and I'm a proud mom to my one-year-old daughter, Yaretzi. I love working at BOYCP and I look forward to continuing to work in all of you! It's ALWAYS a great day to be a Bobcat!
