Chris Cardenas

English Teacher/Mentor

As an English teacher at Fusion, Christian aims to help students in all facets of their education with the written word. He received both his B.A and M.A from the California State University of Northridge in Creative Writing. While there, he was awarded with the Peterson Morley Award, given annually to the most promising candidate entering the field of education. Christian has spent several years as a Supplemental Instructor of Composition at Cal State Northridge, and spent two years overseas in Japan teaching English as a Second Language. He is also enthusiastic about analyzing several forms of popular culture, such as film, television, comics, graphic novels, and video games, in order to integrate them into his ever evolving curriculum. 

 When not happily buried in work, he avidly reads, writes, runs, and wanders. More than anything, he enjoys spending quality time, traveling the world with his beautiful wife.
