Our Community

Our Community

Few places in our country provide us the opportunity to deeply connect with our history through the eyes of our indigenous nations and collaborate with diverse coalitions shaping the future of 21st-century life, discourse, and community. Oklahoma City and its inspiring renaissance story provides that unique and celebrated history, filled with stories of our resilience, perseverance, challenges, and triumphs.

The educational equity ecosystem in our state is poised to make phenomenal progress for children in poverty over the next several years. Teach For America Oklahoma City is proud to be a part of driving that change. Transforming education requires a broad and diverse coalition of people united around our shared values and common purpose. Our expanding alumni network reaches across central Oklahoma and holds the promise of a powerful and lasting local movement, beyond two years in the classroom.

Executive Director

Sarah Park serves the Executive Director of Teach For America Greater Tulsa and Oklahoma City and brings 15 years of experience in education. Sarah’s passion for educational equity started in the classroom as a 2008 Teach For America Hawai’i corps member where she taught 7th and 8th grade math. She took the lessons learned alongside students to become a Corps Member Advisor and a Manager of Teacher Leadership Development with TFA Hawai’i.


In 2013, she joined the Oklahoma team where she held various programmatic roles and increased rigor and student learning in math and science classrooms across Oklahoma, launched Regional Summer Institute, and strengthened the corps and alumni experience for over 550 educators. Sarah now leads a localized strategic vision and plan, works side-by-side with local stakeholders to ensure TFA plays its critical role in advancing educational equity, and aims to influence the conversation about education, learning, and economic mobility in Oklahoma.
