Matt Averna grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from Boston College in 2013 with degrees in Economics and History before moving to Brooklyn in 2014.
Matt has worked as a teacher, tutor and mentor for several years before joining Fusion Academy to teach Mathematics, History and English. He is most interested in the intersections between economics and history, and how society constructs narratives for both.
As a child, his parents banned television, made him participate in science fairs to his chagrin and showed him music to make up for both. When he’s not at Fusion, you’ll be able to find Matt pretending to read in Prospect Park while he’s really just watching dogs.
