    Carter Middle School Family,

    I am extremely excited to be the Principal at Carter Middle School.  Prior to being named Principal at Carter Middle School, I started my teaching career at CMS in 2005 as a Health Teacher.  I was also the Graduation Coach and Head Football Coach at Halls High School prior to getting into Administration at Halls Middle School.  I have served the last two years as Assistant Principal at Karns High School.

  • Go Hornets!



  • I look forward to serving this incredible school and community!

  • Experience with Knox County
