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. In addition, important daily information will be posted to the Daily Agenda for English I (Google Doc). Students can access their section's Daily Agenda through Canvas or by the link on the left menu. If you are absent from class, I would highly recommend checking the Daily Agenda to see what you missed first.


Spring 2020 Schedule:

Period 1: Planning

Period 2: English I Honors

Period 3: English I (co-taught with Mrs. Graham)

Period 4: English I 


Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am always happy to meet with parents or students. You can reach me at the school during regular school days (7-3pm) or email me to set up a conference at a convenient time for you. Thank you!
