Tessa Burleson - High School Science
     Hello!  I am a native of North Carolina, born and raised in Stanly County.  I graduated from West Stanly High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.  After college, I was an Environmental Geologist that specialized in water and soil quality remediation.  I then chose to follow my heart and become a high school science teacher. 
     I hold a NC Comprehensive Secondary Science teaching license and have taught Earth/Environmental Science, Physical Science, Chemistry and AP Environmental Science.  I have 21 years of teaching experience in high school science and am excited to be a part of the UA family!   Along with teaching, I am the Co-Advisor of the 4-H/FFA program here at UA and I love agriculture almost as much as I love geology!
     I have 4 wonderful children, 2 in college and 2 children that attend Union Academy.  I love the emphasis on Character, Challenge and Community here at Union Academy, it is part of what makes this a great school!
