My name is Elliot Roufeh and I am the new Math/Science Teacher at Fusion! I graduated from UC Riverside in June of 2016 with my Bachelors of Science in Biology. After college, I started working as a Behavioral Interventionist/Teachers Assistant in a classroom with children with special needs. This past summer, I transitioned to working as an Academic Coordinator at Destinations for Teens. At Destinations, I worked with teenagers struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. From these previous experiences, I became passionate about teaching and supporting students in the classroom. Outside of work, I love playing sports especially basketball and soccer and supporting the Lakers, Dodgers, and Rams. I have a dog named Lucky, who I’ve had since he was 6 weeks old and now he’s turning 12. I’m super excited to begin working at Fusion teaching science courses such as chemistry, biology, and math courses like algebra and geometry. Can’t wait to meet everyone!
