Polly graduated with honors from the University College of the Creative Arts in Surrey, UK before receiving her Masters of Science in Childhood Education from Hunter College. Polly also holds a New York Teacher Certification, and completed classes to gain her certificate in Teaching Students with Disabilities. Prior to working at Fusion, Polly gained experience working in both New York City public and private schools. She joined the Fusion family in 2013 at our Park Avenue campus, and has taught students one-to-one in English, History, Art, and Yoga. Polly joined the Fusion Brooklyn team when the campus first opened as Assistant Director and has played a key role in enrollment, admissions, teacher training, professional development, student support, and student activities. She has always been critical to the success of the Brooklyn campus, and brings her expertise in pedagogy, her passion for student growth, and her intelligence and creativity to her role as Head of School.
Polly is originally from London, and moved to New York in 2008. She loves to travel, which she inherited from her parents; she always has to think for a moment when people ask what country her parents are in, as this often changes. Polly loves running, making art, and reading.
