Mrs. Lauren Vasquez

My name is Mrs. Vasquez and this is my third year at Washington Heights and I am so glad to be your school counselor. I have been with Fort Worth ISD for 6 years. I have my bachelors degree in Elementary Education and my masters degree in psychology with a concentration in counseling. I have identical twin girls named Lía & Liliana. When I’m not at school I like to spend time outdoors with my family. 
I believe in an open door policy. Students can request a pink counselor pass from the teacher and come visit with the counselor in the front office. Parents/guardians can call the school to set up an appointment or stop by the front office anytime to meet with the counselor! Parents/guardians are also encouraged to stop by the parent resource room on Wednesday’s from 2:15-3:30pm.
