Ms. Katherine Tavener

Hello and welcome to Hickory Ridge High School! My name is Katherine Tavener and I am very excited to be starting another year here at the Ridge. I graduated from UNC Asheville with a Bachelor's in English.  I am originally from Charlotte and I love being outdoors, reading, and spending time with family. I am excited to meet students and value the relationships I can build with them. My mission is for all of my students to be lifelong readers and learners.



For English I, students will be using a class Canvas page to access materials and submit assignments. Grades will sync to Powerschool from Canvas, however some grades may be added to Powerschool from external sites we use in class. Students will need to check both Canvas and Powerschool frequently!

We will also be using Microsoft Teams to conduct live classes during our assigned time period.
