Kelechi Ukoha

3rd Grade Lead Teacher

Hello, my name is Kelechi Ukoha! I am thrilled to be joining Citizens of the World Mar Vista as a lead third grade teacher! 

I was born nearby in Cerritos, California. From a young age I found joy from working with young, aspiring learners. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s in Education and a multiple subjects teaching credential for Arizona and California. 

Diversity was a major factor drawing me to CWC. Diversity of voice, backgrounds, and spirit is a major influencer of true learning and understanding the world in which we live. This community is a beautiful one and I am honored to be a part of it. 

And when I’m not teaching you can find me in that same community fishing, playing basketball, working out or bowling 200 at your nearest alley. 

I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing this year with you!!
