Erin earned her BA in Fine Arts from California State University- Channel Islands in 2008. To keep from being a starving artist, she began working as a tutor and soon realized that her true passion was teaching and mentoring students. She went on to earn her California teaching credentials in Mathematics and Art at San Diego State University in 2012 before joining Fusion Academy in 2013 as a math, science, and art teacher. Aside from teaching, Erin’s favorite hobbies include backpacking, traveling, playing ultimate frisbee, and drinking Chai tea. Little known fact: Erin once ate a live grasshopper on a dare.
