I am a special education teacher and I teach grades kindergarten through second grade. My students are challenged with behavior disorders. Therefore, my students require an environment that is safe, nurturing and structured. Earlier this year, one of my students joined Omar Welch Taekwondo class. Ever since, this student has made remarkable improvements in class. This particular student is now an active leader in our class and the most improved student this year. Taekwondo also offers an inviting and safe environment for students. In addition, it has offered the students the opportunity to enhance their self-esteem and build confidence. Mr. Omar Welch has taught my student how to develop self-discipline by thoroughly training the techniques of Taekwondo. Thanks to Omar Welch, my student continues to make successful strides academically and behaviorally.
