    Dear Carter Family,

    I say family because that is the culture we want to build at our school.  This is my first year at Carter Middle School, and I can say that I am more than excited to be apart of the Carter Family.  I have served at six different middle schools in Knox County as a teacher, assistant principal, and now as principal at Carter Miiddle School.  It is our vision to make CMS a place where students feel safe, learning is always at the forefront, and all are welcome!
