Mrs. Mantione - High School Science


I have been a proud part of the UA family since 2007. I have three students who are alumni of Union Academy and one who is a current student at UA. I am a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic University (RPI) in Troy, NY but have happily lived here in NC since 2001.

I am looking forward to a great year with my students.  Please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone. I will return your call as soon as possible, but it may not be the same day. E-mail is the most efficient way to get in touch with me. 

This year my classes include:
1st Period:   Chemistry Honors
2nd Period:  Physical Science CP
3rd Period:   Physical Science CP
4th Period:   Physical Science CP
5th Period:   Planning
6th Period:   Chemistry Honors

During remote or hybrid learning, additional assistance will be provided through Zoom meetings on Fridays. Times are determined through agreement between students and teacher. 


Access to the syllabus for class may be found on Canvas.
