Meet Omari Trimble

  1. Updates

We are excited to announce Omari Trimble as our first Coach of the Month for the 2013/14 school year. Omari, known to the students at Hallett Elementary as Coach O, has been able to create a positive, inclusive, and fun recess in the short time he has been at his school. As a new Program Coordinator with Playworks, Coach O has quickly adapted to his new role and is taking recess to the next level in the Mile High City. His ability to build rapport with staff, students, and parents has made him a valued team member at Hallett Elementary.  Program Manager Erik House attested to Coach O’s tremendous drive to immerse himself in the culture of his school, “It is rare that I am with Coach O in his school and someone passes that he does not know by name.”

Outside of school Omari enjoys movies, music, cooking and poetry.  He loves hanging with his family and is an avid traveler.  Coach O’s professionalism, attention to detail and consistent enthusiasm are just a few of the reasons why he is a successful Playworks Coach and the Program Coordinator of the Month.
