Ms. Mikayla Marlow


I began teaching at Union Academy in 2021 as a 6th grade ELA teacher before joining our high school English department. Currently, I teach English I, II, and II Honors. I am also an alumna; I attended Union Academy K-12, and I am so excited to be back!

I received my Bachelor's degree in English Literature at Queen’s University of Charlotte. I served as our department's president for Sigma Tau Delta and was very active in our Creative Writing and Theater departments. I then attended UNC Charlotte where I received my Master of Arts in Literature and Children’s Literature with a concentration in Creative Writing. There, I served as president of our department's English Graduate Student Association and our Children's Literature Graduate Organization.

Prior to teaching at UA, I worked as a Level II certified peer and writing tutor during my undergraduate studies. I continued my work as a writing instructor during my graduate studies, and went on to teach an Intro to Writing course and a 2000-level Literature course at UNCC. I also worked for a music school where I taught voice lessons to all ages! 

I am a mother to two adorable puppies, Sadie and Tansy, and a sassy parakeet, Sunny.
