Ms. Mary Kane Ziegler
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!
My name is Ms. Ziegler, or as many students tend to call me - Ms. Z! I am thrilled to teach a variety of classes at both the honors and standard level for English II, English III and English IV.
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 enjoying her junior year at NC State, a son who is currently a senior at CHS, and a younger son who joined the CHS family this school year as a freshman!
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 have an OPEN DOOR policy, and you are ALWAYS welcome to email, call or stop by my room - 610! (So, no excuses for not getting any extra help you may need. :-))
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.
Comets - ALL IN!
