Mrs. Phifer - High School Science

My name is Michelle Phifer and have been with Union Academy since 2014. I look forward to applying what I have learned over the last several years within the classroom to make this year an exciting and challenging time for each of the students. I know that there will be some changes along the way, but adaptability is one of our key character traits here at Union Academy. I also feel very strongly that as students, parents, educators and life leaders we will have a very successful school year.  

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Chemistry degree, and have spent the majority of my career working in the pharmaceutical industry in local hospitals as well as teaching institutions across the state.  I have a Masters Degree in Public Health, North Carolina active teaching license, as well as being a Certified Interscholastic Coach.  I have two children, Phifer and Charlotte, that attend Union Academy.

I will be coaching JV Girls Basketball and Middle School Softball this year.  I am also the adviser for High School Junior Civitan Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  This will be my third year as the the Middle School Athletic Director, which I have truly enjoyed watching our athletic department grow and athletes beginning as early as Kindergarten through our UAA recreational organization. As you can tell, I am an active member of the Union Academy family, and I ask each of you to become so as well. Together we will build a strong school and community to follow.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or needs.

The easiest way to do so is through the school email address:
