He is currently the English Language Learner Coordinator at Integration Charter Schools, a position he has held for five years.

As of 2019, he has been teaching for over 15 years. His hobbies include acrobatics, yoga, and circus arts, including juggling, poi, and hula hooping. The 2019-2020 academic year was Mr. Fredericks' fourth year as a mentor teacher. He was the mentor teacher to Mohamed El-Dwiny from Damietta, Egypt (2016-2017), Adel Ghattas from Asyut, Egypt (2017-2018), Ibrahim Ibrahim from Kafrshukr, Egypt (2018-2019), and Manal Salem from Alexandria, Egypt (2019-2020).
