Mrs. Linnea Watt
Welcome to First Grade!
I am Mrs. Watt and I have worked at Union Academy since 2015. I started off in 3rd grade as a classroom interventionist, spent two years teaching the Media classes for all K-4 students and then moved on to be a teacher on the 1st grade team.
I received my degree from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, earning a BA in both Communication Studies and Norwegian and my Master's Certificate in Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I spent many years working in finance in both Los Angeles and San Francisco, then as a stay-at-home mom and finally following my passion for elementary education.
I am the mother of two daughters, both of whom attend UA. My husband works in insurance and our family has lived in Union County since 2006.
I am honored to teach in a school that focuses on academics, character & community and am looking forward to investing more time in your child’s life.
