Ms. Mary Kane Ziegler
Welcome to the Spring 2021 Semester!
My name is Ms. Ziegler and I will be teaching Honors English IV this semester during 1st, 2nd and 3rd block with a planning period during 4th block. I realize there will be continuous changes throughout our time together, but please know that I will do my best to respond to your emails and provide answers to your questions in as timely a manner as possible.
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 enjoying her senior year at NC State, a son who joined her there this Spring, and a younger son who is a sophomore 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 virtual appointment 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!
