As the Assistant Director at the Austin, TX campus, Vailet has always known that teaching was her passion since the age of five. The validity and power of education caused her creative and curious mind to strive to become an educator. A quote she always lives by is that, “Everyone can be a shining star.” She tries to ensure that every student is able to succeed and have the proper tools to get a solid education.
With Austin being the third Fusion Academy campus that Vailet has worked at, she brings a plethora of pedagogical knowledge to her team. She began her Fusion journey as an English teacher at the Huntington Beach, CA campus. This is where she was able to refine and polish her instructional skills, master individualized education, and help spread compassion amongst others. As a native Los Angelean, she transferred to the Los Angeles campus and served as the SSD (Services for Students with Disabilities) Coordinator, Middle School Cohort Adviser at the Fusion Academy- in Los Angeles, CA.
She graduated (with honors) from Loyola Marymount University earning her Master’s in Literacy and Language Arts and Single-Subject Credential in English. She also obtains her BA in English Literature from CSULA. Prior to working at Fusion, Vailet worked for Green Dot Charter Schools in the Los Angeles area. The demographics of the students whom Vailet has worked with is immensely diverse.
She enjoys reading a wide range of genres including anything from Homeric poetry, Shakespearean plays, to blogs about pop culture and celebrities. Vailet wants her students, and people in general, to appreciate literature and the value of expression.
Hobbies: Reading, camping, kickboxing, & watching game shows.
