Head of School
Tiffany Belferder began with Fusion Academy in 2013, opening the Brooklyn campus. In 2014, she joined the Long Island Fusion team to be closer to her family and immediately it felt like home!
Tiffany earned her Master’s degree from Long Island University. For 7 years she practiced as a licensed & registered Creative Arts Therapist. She started her career leading an after school program for children with developmental disabilities, working alongside ABA therapists and special educators to create behavior plans to be implemented in home, school, and the program. Tiffany then took on the fast paced world of inpatient adolescent psychiatric hospitals where she loved being able to counsel teenagers going through some of the toughest times in their lives. The experience she had there was challenging, but overwhelmingly rewarding. After years working in hospitals, Tiffany joined Fusion falling in love with Fusion’s unique ability to change lives every single school day. She is humbled to use her dynamic experience & passion to continue fostering the success of Fusion Long Island as Head of School.
Tiffany has a passion for yoga, adventure, reading, podcasts, and the growth of all humans. Her favorite part of her day is being with the kids. You will be welcomed by her laugh in any location of campus! But above all, spends any free moment with her own children, Ben and Riley.
