    I worked at Fusion Academy full-time (More than 3 years)


    Working at Fusion is like becoming part of a loving family, driven to make a difference in the world. As a new teacher it was difficult at first to see the big picture because of scheduling and how the ups and downs in hours can lead to consistent full-time work but my admin team found ways to build my schedule and in the end I made a great salary for a newer educator. I found the long teaching days invigorating with supportive administrators and even worked half-days Fridays or took the day off while sustaining FT employment. Even when there was a change in Head of School the new team was amazing and kept the school moving forward because of the shared vision this company has. This school is not about test scores or only defining a student or teacher by the traditional measures of success. Instead, we got to make a real difference for each student while educating them and developing them as better humans for the world. On another post someone called Fusion a diploma mill and nothing could be further from the truth. The academic rigor and responsibility taken by the campus and corporate teams to ensure the best for each students always came throught to me as a teacher. Rigor and academic progresss and success doesn't have to look like countless hours of test prep and homework. Fusion has redefined education. I got to see families heal from the years of heartbreak because of a failed educational system and as an employee, I got to be part of that. I loved my time as a Fusion teacher, it made me an expert at responding to the individual needs of each of my students. Also, as an employee I felt connected to me team and other Fusion teachers around the country.


    This is a rapidly growing company and that means lots of change from hiring to systems roll-out. You need to be ok with that and willing to consistently review, change, and improve your practice.

    Advice to Management

    The ups and downs of enrollment mean students can begin at any time. Having strong scheduling practices can have a profound impact on teacher happiness and the ability to stay long-term.
