HOUSTON – Local pro BMX rider Omari Cato found his way to the classroom as an elementary school teacher at Harmony School of Endeavor.

He teaches social studies and is the founder of the school’s first BMX Bike Club where he introduces the kids to STEM principles and teaches them how to build and ride bikes.

Cato has been riding flatland BMX for over fifteen years, a form of BMX that requires no ramps or obstacles.
