Jacob Pousland


Jacob teaches History and English at Fusion. He is a strong believer in holistic education and connecting different subjects together to achieve greater understanding. For this reason he has pursued an eclectic mix of studies and strives to use economics, political science, and other fields when teaching in the classroom. Most recently he has brought his studies on games into the classroom by pioneering the development of Fusion’s Game Design course.


Originally from Burlington, Vermont, Jacob was homeschooled for most of his childhood. In 2003 his family moved to Austin. In 2009 he enrolled in Abilene Christian University, and in 2011 he studied abroad in Israel. He enjoys gaming, Dungeons and Dragons and studying new fields.
