John has worked at Fusion Academy since late 2014. He started at the San Mateo campus in the Homework Cafe, before transferring to the Westchester, NY campus in 2015 to teach Humanities. John called Westchester home for the next six years, working as the History Department Head from 2019-2021, and as the Director of Homework Cafe from 2020-2021. In August 2021, John returned to the Bay Area to be Fusion Berkeley's Director of Homework Cafe for the 2021-2022 school year. In the summer of 2022, John transferred to the Walnut Creek campus to return to teaching, or as he says, "to scratch that History itch!"
While in New York, John taught also History at Bronx Community College and Concordia College.
