    The best teaching job anyone could ask for

    Dec 3, 2021 - Teacher/Mentor in Alpharetta, GA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - You get paid more than a college professor with a PHD - You get to meaningfully impact students life's who would otherwise be failed by the education system. - Amazing benifits for full time teachers including PTO and holiday pay - At every step, its clear fusion values their teachers with compensation, resources, and support. - The administration at the Alpharetta location is incredible. - The head of school goes out of her way to make sure every teacher is fully supported - We're allowed to be our authentic selves and express our creativity in planning engaging lessons for amazing students.

    Cons

    - Its a lot of work. The pay is amazing, but there is a lot of lesson planning and course personalization. - Learning the systems they use is definitely a bear, but it's a requirement of any job. - Some of these kids have been through some heartbreaking experiences. Loving them through it is incredibly rewarding but holding space for people doesn't come naturally to everyone.

    Pros

    This is probably the healthiest work environment I've ever worked in. Natalia alone was one of the best bosses I've ever had. So sad she had to move to Colorado. All I know is, whoever works for her in Boulder is one of the luckiest people in the world!

    Cons

    I don't have any for Fusion.

    Pros

    Getting to design the curriculum for each student was incredibly effective at keeping the students engaged and allowed them to retain knowledge at a higher level than typical classrooms. Also very rewarding to let the student choose what kind of project they wanted to tackle.

    Cons

    Payment was based on the number of students you had, which very few signed up for.
