Katie Garris

English Teacher

I am so excited to join the DCI community! I earned my Bachelors in English with a Creative Writing Concentration in poetry from Yale University - and still love to spend my time reading and writing. After graduating from Yale, I moved to DC to work with KIPP DC, where I completed a residency year with the Capital Teaching Residency, and then taught 7th grade English for two years at KIPP DC Valor Academy. During this time, I earned my Master's in Teaching Secondary English with Relay Graduate School of Education. In my free time, I stay active, practice yoga & am always planning my next trip abroad!
