Mrs. Deidra S. Cantrell
Welcome to the 2021/2022 school year. I am excited to welcome back our returning as well as our new Titans. This is my 7th year teaching at Northwest Cabarrus Middle School. I will be co-teaching 8th Grade English Language Arts (ELA) & Math. I will be working in classrooms, supporting teachers and students to ensure each child has a successful school year! This year will be an adventure and an interesting journey, but we have demonstrated resiliency and the ability to rise to the challenge.
In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, DIY projects, shopping, and hanging out with my family. I’m an insane fan of coffee (Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks) and dark chocolate. I can’t wait to get to know each of my students as well as their families.
Stay focused, safe, healthy, balanced, flexible, & patient. Together we can make this unique year a great one!
