Mrs. Deidra S. Cantrell
Welcome to Northwest Cabarrus Middle School for the 2019-2020 School Year. My name is Mrs. Deidra Cantrell and I am the Exceptional Children’s Teacher for 8th grade English Language Arts (ELA) and Math Inclusion and Resource. I am so excited to see my returning as well as my new Titans! I love vacationing, shopping, reading, couponing and most importantly spending time with my family. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. I strive to ensure that learning, trust, respect and excellent communication all take place in my classroom. I am looking forward to meeting as well as knowing each student of my class and their parents. I hope to make this academic year, an educational as well as an engaging year for the students. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any concerns you have about your child.
NO MICROSOFT TEAM MEETINGS AS OF 3/31/2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Hello Titans, I hope you and your family are safe and doing well. I can’t wait to re-connect with you all online! Please read all information below to begin this digital transition:
1. Assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. (CLICK HERE to learn how to access Google Classroom from home!)
The class codes are:
ELA (3rd Period)- qrbdlc5
Math (4th Period)- ox5m7c5
2. We will be using Microsoft Teams to communicate throughout the week. Teams can be used to contact me directly and instantly. It will also be used for office hours and to hold "live" classroom discussions. (CLICK HERE to learn how to access Microsoft Teams from home!) You should have received an email notification to join, if not class codes are as follows:
ELA (3rd Period)- c8q4et0
Math (4th Period)- cnqv2o3
3. Assignments (along with recorded directions as needed) will be posted. However, I will have live office hours on Tuesday and Thursdays as listed below. Office hours will be done through a video chat in Microsoft Teams. When I am live for office hours, you will see the meeting and be able to click join. You are welcome to join with or without video, just please make sure your microphone is muted before joining. We will remain in the 3rd quarter until further notice!
Tuesdays and Thursdays
How can I be contacted outside of office hours?
I'm available to answer questions and help you out outside of official "office hours." You can always contact me through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) OR you're welcome to reach out through a direct message on Microsoft Teams (that's what I think is easiest, as it's just like a direct message chat)!
I hope you all are safe and taking good care of each other. We are in a very unusual time during this school year. The COVID-19 outbreak has made us change how we are doing things at home, school and all around. The school and district are working hard to implement alternative ways of providing instruction, so stayed tuned to find out more information as it comes out. Take good care and Thank you!
