    Principal's Message 

       I am humbled and excited to be your new principal at Carter Middle School.  I have lived in the Carter Community my entire life and have children in the Carter area schools.  I am a Hornet, and I have a passion for this community.  I am proud of the progress that Carter Middle School has made in the past couple of years.  My goal is to continue that progress and lead Carter Middle School to be the best middle school in Knox County.  I will work hard to educate, empower, and motivate our students to excel.  I look forward to meeting each of you and working together to achieve the highest potential for our students.    
    GO HORNETS!!!
