Welcome to 6th Grade Math at Union Academy!
Keep up with what's going on in 6th grade with the MONDAY MINUTES.
My name is Amanda Adams and I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade Math again this year!
I am originally from Charlotte and received my degree from UNC Charlotte. My husband and I have three children here at Union Academy. We have Bryan, who is in 8th grade, Faith, who is in 2nd and Emalynn, who entered Kindergarten this year.
2018-2019 will be my fourteenth year teaching in North Carolina. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. I've had the honor of being a mentor to some wonderful teachers in my career and will be trying to obtaining my national board certification this year.
I am excited to meet the newest class of 6th graders and help them begin their journey in middle school. We are going to have a great year!

Please make sure to check your child's grades on a regular basis. If you are unaware of how to do this, you must first go by the front office. There, they will give you specific directions that will allow you and your student to access grades.
