A note from Mrs. Smith:
Welcome to 4th grade at UA!
I am very excited to journey through this year with you!
I received my undergraduate degrees at Emory & Henry College in Emory, VA. I then attended graduate school at UNC-C and UNC-W for my graduate degrees and certifications.
I joined UA in 2020. Before UA, I spent 5 years working for a virtual charter school where I worked remotely teaching students across the state. I worked in the county public schools for many years before teaching virtually.
My husband, Matthew, and I live in Monroe with our three boys who all attend UA! We all love to travel and play silly board games together! My husband and I are avid escape room players and have played over 150 rooms.
A note from Mrs. Pawl:
Hello UA 4th Graders!
My name is Mrs. Pawl and this will be my first year helping in 4th grade. I have been at UA for almost five years now and I have always been in 3rd grade. I am very excited to be here with you all this year to start a new adventure!
My husband and I moved from Nebraska about 14 1/2 years ago. We have two boys, Christian and Ethan, and they both attend UA as a 9th grader and a 6th grader. We love baseball and going to see movies at the theater.
