Houston, Texas-native, Kevin Fisher Jr., is truly one gifted young man. Other than the fact the he is a member of one of the most exclusive clubs in the world, Mensa, Kevin is also a budding actor, among other things. Congratulations are in order for Fisher as he has just also made his acting debut on ABC’s hit television series, Abbott Elementary.

In an exclusive interview with Houston’s ABC13, Fisher and his mother spoke about his educational journey, in addition to how the young man landed a spot on the award-winning series, Abbot Elementary.


Natasha Fisher told the news outlet that she realized from an early age that her son was gifted. Both Fisher and his mother shared that at the age of two, he was able to read. At four-years-old, he was playing the piano. At five, he was completing two-step equations, which is a middle school level skill etc. etc.

From there, Natasha, an educator herself, realized that her son continued to excel in several subjects, including his favorites, math and science. He was eventually tested for admission into Mensa, and with an IQ of 137, whereas the average IQ for a seven-year-old child is 100, he was accepted into the society.

Fisher is not only talented in the classroom, he is making a way in the acting world as well. Represented by the legendary Neil Hamil Agency, after several attempts, Fisher booked his first major primetime speaking role on Abbott Elementary.

Although he had only one line on the episode, we have a feeling that this is just the beginning for him in front of the camera.

In addition to acting and pursuing his own educational goals, this brilliant second-grader is ensuring that both children and adults get the extra math and science reinforcement that they need via his YouTube channel, “ThaKidTeacher.” 

Per the official Mensa website, “more than six million people qualify for membership in the U.S. alone — that’s one person in every 50.” There is no age limit to join the prestigious club of intellectuals; however, you have to take the test for admission and score “within the upper 2% of the general population.”
