About Me

My name is Erin Messersmith and I have taught language arts and English at both the middle and high school level; in addition, I have also taught college English and courses in creative writing and communications.  This will be my fifteenth year of teaching and I am so excited to be teaching at Carrington Middle!  I am originally from upstate New York and obtained my bachelor's degree from Siena College in Loudonville, New York and a master's degree in British and American Literature from NC State.  I adore animals and have three cats, whom I consider to be my children, and who are named Daisy, Lenore, and Mr. Poe.  In my free time, I love to read and watch Netflix.  I love all things British, so I particularly love the series The Crown and all things Jane Austen.  However, my absolute favorite author is Edgar Allan Poe, as I named two of my cats after his characters.  Please feel free to reach out to me at erin.messersmith@dpsnc.net
