Mr. Okoli has been a huge advocate to the power of play Houston this school year. A staff member at Kipp Zenith, a Prek-3rd grade campus, Mr. Okoli assisted Coach Mary Riley with everyday programming. High fiving and good job, nice try were contagious as well as his participation in class game time and recess. Mr. Okoli has assisted Coach Riley during class game times in leading games and utilizing group management techniques. He continuously encourages students to get in the game and treat everyone with respect.
One can find Mr. Okoli engulfed in a game of bridge ball or helping lead and organize 3-line soccer. His enthusiasm and nimble speed in tag games are comparable to none Mr. Okoli has also been a leader with the Junior Coach Program, assisting with youth development and encouraging students at check-ins and outs. Every school should have a Mr. Okoli. A leader among his peers and students and a supporter of learning through safe and healthy play. Thanks Mr. Okoli for all you do!
