Greetings all!

I am Ms. Carter, and I have been given the privilege of taking over Mrs. Acton’s class for the rest of the school year! I am so excited to work with this group of 8th graders; I have heard so many amazing things about everyone. If anyone needs to contact me with any questions of concerns while Mrs. Acton is out, you may reach me at: ccarter@shelbyed.org
