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 am a Charlotte native and still live there now. I graduated from UNC Asheville with a Bachelor's in English and finished my teaching licensure through UNC Charlotte. I love getting 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 my students to feel confident, engaged, and inspired to read.
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 2019 Schedule:
Period 1: Planning
Period 2: English I Honors
Period 3: A/B English I (Yearlong, 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!
