Class Experience

Students will increase their understanding of chess.They will be able to name each piece, how they move, and how to capture opponent's pieces. They will be able to set up a game of chess. They will be able to articulate their moves and strategically plan ahead.
I enjoy playing and teaching chess and inspiring a passion within children to learn. I learned to play as a very young child and believe chess teaches children pertinent problem-solving strategies that help them throughout their lives. The ability to think one's way out of a problem is an essential life skill. Studies show that children who learn chess do better academically, so the science behind the learning is there. I taught chess to elementary-level students at different schools as part of their after-school program. I taught chess strategies, tactics, and sportsmanship to help future leaders solve problems in chess, in their classrooms, and throughout their lives.
❈ Aided in the development of problem-solving skills inside and outside of the classroom. 
❈ Improved sportsmanship and success through chess.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
