Joe "the trick-star" Odhiambo attempting to break one of his many Guinness World Records in Las Vegas during the 2007 NBA All-Star Game.
As a former school teacher (12 years experience with 7th and 8th graders), I know first-hand how important quality assemblies are for boosting students’ as well as teachers’ morale. Assemblies can be grouped into three categories: mandatory, educational, and reward/entertainment.
These include assemblies like students’ orientations, discipline or for general informative purposes.
Reward assemblies include honors, fundraisers or any other celebratory assemblies that recognized student achievements in and outside the classroom.
This category includes informative programs that provide students with important information to help their general well-being and development in school. Examples include Character Count, Drug Awareness, anti-bullying, peer pressure, etc. These are important assemblies that every school must have in order to educate students and help them adjust or cope with the hassles that students face when going about their day-to-day lives in school.
Assemblies regardless of category are important for students as well as teachers because it gives both parties a break from each other. Well-coordinated and organized assemblies can also be used to complement what teachers have been teaching in class. Finally, quality assemblies can be used as incentive for students to work hard to meet certain standards before they can attend the programs, which makes them even more valuable for educational purpose.
I used my experience as a school teacher, basketball coach, and most important as a professional basketball-handling performer to come up with a fun and educational programs that appeal to students of all ages and background - a spinning basketball speaks all languages.
It would have been easier to lie down and blame the situation he was in, but he didn't. Joe realized early that we are limited more by our imagination than our physical, natural or social abilities. Opportunities for success are everywhere; however, one must be ready to take advantage of the opportunities to succeed.
Odhiambo now communicated these tough life lessons and experience to his audience. He strongly believes that even though we start the race at different places, when the distances are measured at the finish line, we all cover the same lengths to success. One cannot despair because you start far behind or take it easy because you are far head. At the end of the day, what you put in is what you will get back.
Odhiambo practically shows the students that people who succeed in their endeavors are not special in anyway. They are ordinary people like you and I. These successful people work hard in what they do and use simple attributes that the general population term as trivial to forge ahead. These attributes are as follows:
Triple T Basketball & Entertainment has some of the best school assembly programs that you will find anywhere. The programs are unique because Joe "the trick-star" Odhiambo lives in the present–he is as real as you can get. Odhiambo does not tell his audience that you will succeed if you work hard, he shows them through physical examples. He relishes the challenges of “what have you done for me lately.”
