Matthew Pechanio, a member of the Fusion Oak Brook team since May of 2018, was born and raised in Elmhurst IL, and he has never left! He earned his bachelors at NIU and a Masters at Trinity International University. Prior to coming to Fusion Matthew taught high school for nine years at a private school in Elmhurst and then spent another eight years in various leadership, teaching, public speaking and care giving positions.
Matthew loves the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the students at Fusion. As a teacher-mentor in the humanities (English, history, governments, the social sciences, health and fitness to name a few) he brings excitement and enthusiasm along with a commitment to provide a quality educational experience. His desire to care for the whole person and nurture students is what energizes Matthew.
In his free time Matthew enjoys fitness, reading and brewing and animals of all kinds! Be sure to ask him about his time in India too!
