Kelly Jakob


Kelly is a very passionate and determined teacher. Kelly will be teaching all sciences and math here at Fusion. She went to both Illinois Wesleyan University and Lewis University, graduating with a double major in Chemistry and Secondary Education. She has worked in many different types of schools and finds it most rewarding when able to connect with students and get them excited about math and science. She has taught at several schools in Illinois including a private high school in Kankakee, a public middle school in Tinley Park, a therapeutic day school in Tinley Park, and also a public school in Manteno. Her favorite experiences were the one-on-one interactions she was able to have and finding ways to make science and math more applicable to that individual student’s life by tying it to their interests.

In her free time, she loves spending time with her family and friends. She also has spent a lot of time fixing up her first house and spending time with her dog she rescued.
