Skyler Highsmith grew up in Kerrville, TX and attended Austin College where he studied Classics and Biology. Since moving to Austin in 2015, he has worked with a variety of institutions as both an instructor and instructional coach including Sylvan Learning, Varsity Tutors, and AISD. He found his way to Fusion at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year, teaching math, science, and Latin. 2016 proved to be a pretty busy year, seeing Skyler start a new job, move 3 times, and get engaged! Fusion has proven to be a truly life changing career move, allowing him to create a space where he feels completely free to totally own who he is each and every day. His goal is to create or foster that sense of freedom and belonging to all of his students while having fun along the way! In his free time, you can find Skyler nerding out to D&D, drinking outrageous amounts of coffee, and spending as much time with his family as he can.
