A little something about me

Jun 19, 2010, 12:27 PM |

I just wanted to write something about myself.  I have no current official chess rating but have played chess for 29 years and was asked to help my  son's elementary  school learn chess.  They had a program in place and yet no one knew that much about it.  It has now been four years and I am amazed at how much the kids pick up and are eager to learn.  It has been a rewarding experience for me as much for them.  I hope to start one in the middle school as my son is moving on and they have nothing in place there.  We have mini tournaments every year and hope to participate in an actual one at some point.  Anyone out teach chess to students as well?  Please drop me a message or post on my blog I would love to hear your experiences.
