Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Tim Adams
I grew up in Mt. Holly, North Carolina, and I graduated from UNCC in 1987 with a BA in English Education and in 1994 with a MED in Curriculum and Instruction. I began my teaching career in 1987 at Piedmont High School, and I taught there until 2006 when I moved to UCEC until 2021 when I retired from UCPS. I worked for a year at Lowe's as an MST, but I felt the call to return to teaching and accepted a position here at UA.
I am married to Tonya, a science teacher at UA. We have two children--Luke and Shelby. While Luke is currently waiting on us in Heaven, Shelby is a junior at UNCC working on her Communications degree and interning for UNCC football and baseball.
In my spare time, I enjoy going to UNCC football and basketball games (GO NINERS!) as well as playing Xbox, reading, and fishing. I also enjoy spending time at the beaches on Sullivan's Island and Hilton Head.
I look forward to getting to know you and your son/daughter and seeing what we can accomplish this year at UA!
