Kirsten Malec

Director of Student Development

Kirsten joined the Fusion family in 2018 as a teacher before becoming the math and science department head in 2020. She enjoyed building lasting connections with her students through her classes in math, science, life skills, and wellness before transitioning into the role of Director of Student Development.

Kirsten has a BS in Physics from University of Illinois and a talent for bringing together skillful analysis with a personal warmth to engage her students and guide them to reaching their goals. She understands the demands placed on students today, and works together with parents and students to ensure they have the best school experience, one that prepare them for their future.

When she’s not on campus, Kirsten enjoys spending time outside with her puppy Paprika and going to the beach. She also likes to go to anime conventions and throw the occasional axe.
