Hear from Our Employees

Nicole Deveau-Jalbert, Fusion Fairfield

I have never been happier in a job in my whole life. I am valued, appreciated, respected, and treated better here than I could have even dreamed. I've always gravitated towards jobs that allow me to help people, but these jobs have notoriously high burn out rates. At Fusion, I get to be a part of important work--helping students achieve amazing goals, watching them blossom into more confident, stronger, happier people, while also feeling taken care of myself. Fusion's culture encourages community and having fun at work! I can easily and happily imagine a long career with this company.

Ellie Markham, Fusion Oak Brook

I cannot say enough wonderful things about working at Fusion. I have never had a day where I dread coming to work. I always look forward to it. I guess in that sense, I shouldn't even call it "work" then. The culture is so fun, freeing, and welcoming that it is hard to leave! That is why I haven't yet after a few years, I just can't leave this incredible workplace.

Brandon Hilliard, Fusion Pasadena

When I first came to Fusion, I had no idea what to expect. The concept of a one-to-one school was so new to me. I was nervous that I wasn’t ready to handle every situation that came up during my first few months of teaching. I soon realized that the role of mentor was so crucial to my own success as well as the students. The relationships I have been able to make with students has provided me with such a great joy that I know would be impossible to achieve in a regular school setting. I truly enjoy getting to help students grow into responsible, compassionate, and critical thinking adults.

Bonnie Reveley, Fusion Solana Beach

Working at Fusion Academy has changed my life. Up to the time I joined this team, I had only dreamed of and imagined a school that honored the individual in their academic journey. When I walked through the campus that first time, I saw students smiling in their classrooms, loving the learning process, engaged with their teachers. Thriving. It has been a daily privilege to work with students, honor their individual learning process, re-instill the love of learning, and see them come alive in a place where they are respected and valued.

Ryan Lugo, Fusion Tysons

Fusion is a life-changing place, not only for the students, but for us teachers as well. Until Fusion, I had never found happiness in my work. Having studied physics in college, I quickly found that most of the doors left open for me would lead me to a stuffy lab, or even worse, a desk and cubicle. Fusion offered me this path that I did not know existed, and though I went in rather blindly, I could tell from the get-go it would be worth it. Fusion, as simple as this sounds, makes me happy: the students, the other teachers, the entire staff, and everything Fusion stands for makes this unique little place perfect.

Amber Larson, Fusion Southlake

Fusion is an incredible place to work. I love being a part of our student's stories and the growth and confidence they achieve while here. The staff is always working together to innovate and provide the best experience possible for each student. Our school is full of passion and determination while supporting everyone to develop their talents and areas of growth, in all areas. I am so blessed to work here with our amazing staff and students!
