All students should have the Google Doc below bookmarked on their Chromebooks. Each day it is updated with a class agenda, homework, and learning targets. Any online resources or assignments are hyperlinked.
On any day that a grammar quiz is scheduled, a review session will be held from 7:30-7:55am
I'm also available Monday - Friday from 7:15-7:45am to provide assistance. Afternoon times may be scheduled in advance.
My name is Brandon Austin, and this is my ninth year teaching English Language Arts (ELA). This is my second year as an eighth grade ELA teacher at Union Academy (UA), but I have been a UA parent for seven years. Prior to my time here, I taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grades in Union County Public Schools.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999, and completed my graduate coursework in Middle Grades Education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). In addition, I completed my Graduate Certificate in Academic and Intellectually Gifted Education at UNCC in 2017.
