Markita Harris

B.A. in Political Science and English from Xavier University of Louisiana in 2008. Markita began her career in education with the South Louisiana branch of Teach for America in 2008. As a TFA corps member, Markita worked diligently to improve the literacy of young, under-privileged learners in Baton Rouge public schools before moving to a charter school where she worked with the schools' most struggling readers. Markita is currently teaching English abroad in Turkey to elementary students. Upon her return, she will serve as a Manager of Teacher Leadership and Development for incoming TFA Corps members in Baton Rouge. It is her greatest desire to open a charter school that will give every student regardless of ability or socio-economic status access to a quality education.
