Mrs. Urh - High School Science

My life has taken many wonderful twists and turns. I grew up in Illinois and earned my BS in Biology, minoring in math and chemistry, at Northern Illinois University. From there, I lived in Boston, MA for 4 years and worked as a research technician in biotechnology. Another move to the SanFransisco Bay area where I continued in biotech for 4 more years, finally earning the title of "Research Scientist". Our next move was to Omaha, NE where my husband and I had our three children. Finally, our last move was to Matthews NC in 2006.
I began teaching at UA in 2007 in middle school math, then high school biology in 2013. Happily, all three of my kids are UA ulumni! :)
I decided to retire from teaching in 2015 but found I just wasn't content being away from the students, the teachers, and the academics. I am thrilled to be back at Union Academy this year teaching Earth science and chemistry.

My tutoring schedule is (almost) any day after school, as needed.

This year UA will be utilizing Canvas as a means of communication, course work, and a variety of other purposes. Please see the links below for more information.
