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.


VIRTUAL Open House 2020- Please find the links to all Open House resouces on left-hand menu.



For English I, students will be using a class Canvas page to access materials and submit assignments. All assignments and due dates will be posted to Canvas. Students will need to check this frequently! We will also be using Microsoft Teams to conduct live classes during our assigned time period.

Reminder: Fridays are asynchronous days and students will not be attending any live class times.
