Ms. Mary Kane Ziegler

Welcome to the Fall 2022 Semester!

My name is Ms. Mary Kane Ziegler and I am teaching Honors English IV and  English IV this semester. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom with my students again and am looking forward to another semester full of creative learning based around our study of British Literature.


As this is the last English class many of you are required to take prior to graduation, I realize you may have more questions than usual, so please know that I will always do my best to respond to your emails and provide you with information in as timely a manner as possible. 



1st block: Honors Eng IV

2nd block: Honors Eng IV

3rd block: Eng IV

4th block: Planning


A little about me...

I graduated from NC State with a bachelors degree in English Literature: Writing and Editing, and spent 20+ years as a marketing communications and PR executive in a variety of leadership roles. I have 3 children - a daughter and CHS graduate who is a recent graduate from NC State University, a son who is now a junior at NC State, and a younger son who is now a senior at CHS!


My approach to teaching is to create a fun, interactive environment while using my experience in the corporate world to reinforce the importance of delivering high-quality work, setting and achieving goals, and adhering to deadlines. Through the rigorous study of all aspects of language and literature, students learn, refine and master critical skills related to comprehension, writing, persuasion techniques, and effective public speaking that will serve them well throughout their post-high school experiences. 


Students - I am here to help you, and you are ALWAYS welcome to email, call or schedule a time to meet with me one-on-one, so please reach out anytime!


Parents - please feel free to email or call as well, and I am happy to meet with you for a scheduled conference at your convenience. 


I am looking forward to a great semester!

Comets - ALL IN!
