My name is Karis Myer and I will be teaching Fifth Grade Reading for KIPP OKC College Prep in the 2020-21 school year! Born in Midwest City, but raised in the Air Force, I have lived in Oklahoma for 12 years total. In the past, I have been fortunate enough to call Germany, North Dakota, and Colorado my home, but Oklahoma always remained close to my heart. I returned to Oklahoma City in 2012 to pursue my education at Oklahoma City University. During my four years at OCU, I was involved in campus life as a Clara Luper Scholar, a Resident Assistant for OCU Housing, and an active member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History. After three years in the work force I finally and found my way to KIPP OKC.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the KIPP OKC team. I look forward to meeting and working with all the new scholars and parents this year. Together, I know we will strive to make the most of these extraordinary circumstances!
