Jaime Gano

Just a little about me.. my name is Jaime (pronounced like Jamie), and I'm the Student Success Coach (SSC) for Hayward High. I have a passion for working with adolescents and transitional age youth to help them find their way and achieve their goals. I am a huge San Francisco Giants fan and huge fan of the show Friends. I love to hike, spend time with my husband, family and friends, and to participate in mindfulness activities like yoga and meditation. I am a fur momma to four fur babies- three kitties and one doggie, who's ready for another doggie sibling. Please feel free to call, email, or stop by and see me in C1 and let me know how I can help you reach your goals.  =^..^=


What is a Student Success Coach?

In a collaborative partnership with the Hayward Promise Neighborhoods (HPN) Program, led by California State University East Bay, came the role of a Student Success Coach (SSC). As an SSC, I am here to help ensure students' educational success by re-engaging them with the school and getting them back on track towards graduation. By supporting their social-emotional well-being, both within the school and home environments, I hope to recreate the lost connection between the student and the classroom for what is hopefully a journey that nurtures lifelong learning and success well beyond high school.
