I wanted to tell you a few things we have observed in Aiden's first few classes with you:
- He is extremely happy to be there (wanting to be there is half the battle!).
- Your teaching style is really great for all the kids, but especially for a student like Aiden. You are using techniques that many educators go to school for years to learn!
-Aidan stands a little bit taller and a little taller bit straighter as a result of being so proud to be there. Your positive and reinforcing teaching style is very confidence.
Aiden has come a long way from exclusively participating in Special Olympics to your karate school. We are so proud of him, but know that he will not be successful without a teacherlike you who is supportive, gentle, fun, encouraging, and always positive. He will have challenges that others do not, and will struggle to remember sequences of moves and proper execution of kicks, blocks, and punches, but,you will not meet a kiddo that works harder than he to maintain and keep up.
I just wanted to tell you thank you, from both my husband and myself, for accepting him, allowing him to participate, and accommodating his speical needs. I truly believe that he will be better and stronger for having joined Talamantez FamilyKarate School.
Please feel free to share this with your parents who are considering placing their childern with you.
Thank you again. You are making a difference in my child's life.
