Welcome to 8th Grade! I am currently in my fifteenth year of teaching at Northwest Cabarrus Middle School and my eighteenth year teaching overall. I earned my bachelor's degree from Ashland University, Ashland, Ohio in 2001 and my master's degree from UNC Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina in 2011.


I am looking forward to a great school year!

Class Updates



    The follwing is a message from Mrs. Blessington about grades...


    "June 4th will be the last day that teachers will collect 4th quarter assignments for additional points to be earned for the student's 4th quarter grade, but students will still engage with learning through a cross-disciplinary PBL through the end of the school year. We highly encourage all students to complete the PBL. Let's stay engaged and end the school year Titan Strong!"



    Please sign up for the Remind App if you have not already. This is one way I will be checking in with parents and students each week. You can search DagueAtlas8 to sign up. I will also be sending email updates. Be sure to check your email!


    Please check your Google Classroom for updated lessons and assignments.  


     If you or your parents have any questions, please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Students have to use their Microsoft 365 email account when emailing teachers.


    I will be holding office hours each week. Office hours are listed below. During this time, I will be available though email, Remind, or Google Classroom.


    Office Hours: (I will be available through email, Remind, and Google Classroom during these times.)

    • Math - Thursdays
      • Period 3 = 11:00-11:30
      • Period 4 = 1:00-1:30
    • Social Studies - Tuesdays
      • Period 5 = 2:00-2:30
      • Period 6 = 3:00-3:30



    Assignments are now in PowerSchool. You will see the assignment listed and your student will have a collected, missing, or incomplete mark. If the assignment says collected (green check), the assignment was turned in and your student has received credit for the assignment. If the assignment is marked incomplete (blue box), the assignment needs to be resubmitted or completed to get credit. In other words, the student has not earned a high enough “grade” to receive credit for the assignment. If the assignment is marked incomplete (orange box), the assignment is not started or complete and needs to be completed and submitted to earn credit. PowerSchool will be updated once a week to keep parents/guardians updated on assignments. You can also check with your student and ask them to show you their ALEKS or Google Classroom where all assignments are posted.
