Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kara Scifres
College(s): Oklahoma State University
Teaching History: This is my 11th year teaching. I taught 4th grade for 8 years and this coming school year will be my second year as a third grade teacher and at Huffman Elementary.
Family: Parents Karl and Kathy Scifres, retired and live in Oklahoma. Brother, James and his wife Shawnee with my 2 favorites: niece, Leah, 8 and nephew, Asher, 6. My boyfriend Ben takes me on all kinds of adventures and makes life so enjoyable.
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: exercising, reading, nature walks (just discovered Arbor Hills) picnics, board games, podcasts, and I recently discovered I enjoy puzzles. I added Star Wars as an interest in the last year- finally watched them all start to finish!
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I was so excited to find a school that fosters inquiry in children to create well rounded and global thinkers for our future. I believe strongly in the mission statement of our school and look forward to creating that unique and powerful learning environment in my classroom with my Hawks.
