Ms. Yanacsek - Eighth Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Yanacsek's Information Site

The 2019-20 school year will be my fifth year of full time teaching at Union Academy, but many of you know that I have been a substitute here for eight years. My son graduated from Union Academy in 2017 and from Wingate University in 2020; my daughter graduated from UA in 2020, and she attends Wingate University.  

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.

Your student will have access to my Canvas page that contains daily updates on class activities and due dates.
