Jake Nester is the fun, patient, and enthusiastic Director of Homework Cafe here at Fusion Academy. He went to Chico State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and was very active in the sustainability community. He is also certified in outdoor education leadership. Jake worked previously as a substitute teacher in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District and was the head substitute at Del Amigo High School. Before becoming Director of Homework Cafe, Jake served as Fusion’s Social Science Department Head. In his free time, he loves to be in the great outdoors, enjoy live music, and spend time with his big crazy family. He also likes action sports, including surfing, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. He has made it a point to travel as much as possible, and spent last summer backpacking Asia. One thing you may not know about Jake is that outside of school, he is known as the Captain, who may be seen DJing, barbecuing, or hanging by the pool.
