Mrs. Deidra S. Cantrell

Welcome to the 2020/2021 school year. I am excited to welcome back our returning as well as our new Titans. This is my 6th 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) and dark chocolate. I can’t wait to get to know each of my students as well as their families.

Stay focused, safe, well, balanced, flexible, & patient. Together we can make this unique year a great one!
