Erika Braswell


My name is Erika Braswell, and this is my first year at Union Academy! I am thrilled to be joining this amazing community and cannot wait to see what this year holds. 

I am a Union County native, Wingate born and raised (Go Bulldogs!). This will be my ninth year teaching. I am currently teaching English 2 Honors and English 4. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English and Education from Wingate University. During my second year of teaching, I decided to pursue my Master's degree through Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!), and I hold a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Reading and Literacy. I also am Gifted and Talented and AP Literature endorsed. I consider myself a lifelong student, and I look forward to many more learning opportunities in the future. I am a firm believer that as a teacher, I should constantly be learning in order to better myself so that I can better prepare my students to be contributing members of society. I hope to create lifelong learners who are empathetic and creative.  

In my spare time, you'll find me pursuing my love of interior design, reading, and running. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out via email if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to a fantastic year at UA!
