      Gabrielle Leon

      5th-Grade Science

      Gabrielle Leon is the 5th-grade science and social studies teacher. She has lived in Oklahoma her entire life, growing up just south of Tulsa in Broken Arrow. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in communication and a minor in philosophy. This is her first year teaching at KIPP and she loves it! Ms. Leon chose KIPP because as a college graduate she understood the importance of going to college. She believes the motto "to and through college" is vital for getting KIPPsters in the same mindset. Although teaching is a lot of what she does, Ms. Leon also loves to be outside, whether it be playing with her dogs or going for a run. She also likes to read, watch live music and cook. D.E.A.R. time is a super important part of the day at KIPP, not only for students but for teachers as well (teachers like to get ahead in their favorite books too!). Right now, she is reading Spy the Lie, a book about being able to detect deception through a series of careful questioning and detailed analysis of the answers. Ms. Leon would love to get to know all of her students and families, so please feel free to reach out to her!

      Candace Marzett

      KIPP Through College Alumni Advisor

      Hello team and family my name is Candace Marzett. I am the new KIPP Through College Alumni Advisor at KIPP Tulsa. I am very excited to be working with and supporting our alumni as they pursue their goals of college matriculation. I grew up in north Tulsa and graduated from McLain High School in 2004. I received a B.A. in Child Development from Langston University in 2009 and I’m currently pursuing my M.A. in Rehabilitation Counseling.

      Prior to joining the KIPP Tulsa team, I taught preschool for five years and I truly loved it. However, until a year ago, I began to feel a higher calling upon my life. It is so important for our kids to see people of their community, with similar circumstances, persevere to/through college; it is the domino effect, “if it happened for me, it could happen for you.” This gives students a sense of hope and that their dreams are obtainable, especially when one exhibits certain characteristics such as Grit, Zest, Self-Control, Optimism, Gratitude, Social Intelligence, and Curiosity.

      I am married to my childhood best friend. His name is Donterrio Marzett. Our parents are neighbors. When we first met we were friend-enemies and later became good friends in the third grade. We have been married for five years; however, it feels like a lifetime. We have one crazy son named DJ, who truly believes he is a KIPPster. Only one dilemma, he is three years old! In my personal time, my absolute favorite thing is spending time with my family doing nothing. My hobbies are reading self-help books, watching funny movies, and having family functions. Overall, I am honored and thrilled to be a part of your child’s amazing journey “To and Through College.” We are blessed to be a blessing.

      Donterrio Marzett is the Band Director for KIPP Tulsa. He received his BA in Music Education in 2009 from Langston University. While at Langston University he held many leadership roles in organizations like The Beta Kappa Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Langston University Marching Pride Band, Student Government Association, NAACP, Kappa Delta Pi, and the Alpha Chi Honor Society. During his student teaching in Oklahoma City Public Schools he was recruited by former KIPP Tulsa Principal Darius Kirk. Following graduation, Donterrio accepted an offer to teach at KIPP Tulsa and relocated back to his home town of Tulsa, OK. Immediately after relocation he began preparations of the instrumental music program and created the awesome KIPP Tulsa “Showtime” Marching Band.

      Donterrio is passionate about religion, family, continuously improving the north Tulsa community through education, developing young musicians, and enjoying life. Donterrio married his wife, Candace, in February 2010, and they recently had their first child. Donterrio is appreciative to be a vital part of the KIPP movement, and he is inspired by great, committed teachers and students who have the desire to become better each and every day.
