Ms. Yanacsek - 7th & 8th Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Yanacsek's Information Site

The 2018-19 school year will be my second year of full time teaching at Union Academy, but many of you know that I have been a substitute here for seven years. My son graduated from Union Academy in 2017, and he now attends Wingate University.  My daughter is a sophomore in high school at UA. 

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville (UNC-A) with a degree in Education that spans Kindergarten through 12th grade. I taught in the Union County School system at Parkwood and Sun Valley High Schools prior to coming to UA.
