Ms.Unger is an English teacher who has been in SMHS since its opening in 2013. She has been working in Berkeley County for twenty-one years.

Ms. Unger is a passionate person dedicating to living every moment of her life to the fullest. She carries this passion from her Father who is also an English professor. She is very ardent about her job and the teachings of the English language but because of her passion she did poorly in math and science just like everyone who has a particular and special talent and purpose.

“Personal life- I have two daughters, Kylie and Katie, who make me so proud. Kylie is in grad. school at Georgetown and Katie will graduate from WVU in May and then will pursue a master’s degree in the fall. I love spending as much time with them as possible. I have recently become engaged, and that has been exciting. I like to travel, watch movies, visit my family and friends. “If I wasn’t a teacher, I would be a private investigator.”

She has two educated and respectable daughters and a newfound partner in life. Her life is audacious and exciting but at the same time stable and with no doubt it’s difficulties occasionally.
