Tierney Cashman has taught English, History, and French at Fusion for the past three years. She grew up in a bilingual house with French and English and graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor’s in English while taking many history classes. While in school, she worked for the Department of Education summarizing school grants and creating mentorship conferences and working as a teacher’s assistant in various public schools. After graduation, she went on to work as a technical writer for the Walt Disney Company. In September 2014, she moved to Austin for her husband’s job, and thoroughly missed the classroom and spouting random facts about history. Her favorite authors include Stephen Crane, Thomas Hardy, and JD Salinger.
