Wellness Coordinator


 

Sydney Fisher, x3162 fishers@sfusd.edu

Hi, my name is Sydney Fisher, I am the Wellness Coordinator in the Wellness Center located in Rm. 151. I am a native San Franciscan and the proud human of two dogs, Josie, an English Bulldog and a Scooby, a long-legged Chihuahua. I went to Abraham Lincoln High School, where I was a junior varsity cheer leader and ran on the track team. In my previous work experience, I have worked with foster youth in schools, pre-adjudicated and adjudicated youth, who were involved in the fostercare system and/or the juvenile justice system and youth with a history of substance use and/or mental health issues. As a social worker and your wellness coordinator, I am committed to providing student-centered services, as well as, assisting students who need to access resources that will help support their academic, mental and emotional health. I am also dedicated to and advocate for racial and social justice, diversity, freedom and equity for those who have been oppressed and marginalized by social and institutional systems. My desire is to live in a world where everyone has the ability to meet their basic needs, to be afforded equal and equitable access to opportunities and to live well, safe and free.

I have worked as a nurse in five different states and five different countries. I love to take long walks because there is just so much to see in this city. I also love to read and I read all the time. Stop in and see me anytime! I always love to learn about what you are thinking and doing! You can find me in Room 159.

Hello, my name is Danae, and I am here at Galileo High School as one of the part-time Wellness counselors. I’m a native Spanish speaker, so I also counsel students in that language. As a counselor, I am here to support you through challenges and to help you learn more about yourself. In my free time, I love to hang out with friends and family, watch movies, and explore our beautiful city. I’m at Galileo every Monday and Tuesday, and every other Wednesday. If you want to meet with me, my office is in room 205 or you can make an appointment with Naomi in the Wellness Center. I look forward to meeting you!

I’m Aaron Hagaman, one of the part time Wellness counselors. My job is to help you learn about yourself and how to better deal with school, family, peer and personal stuff that comes up. When we learn how to manage this in our own style life is much more fun and empowering! Before Galileo I worked at the Wellness center at Lowell High. Prior to that I led wilderness rite of passage trips for teens. I also currently have my own business as a therapist working with adults, couples and teens and their families. I love San Francisco, and enjoy spending my free time exploring the city with friends. I also love getting out of the city into the surrounding outdoors to go camping and hiking. My office is located in Room 205 and you can make an appointment in Room 151 with Naomi.
