I taught myself how to play via the World Book Encyclopedia because my friends in 8th grade were playing at recess when the weather was too cold to go outside. Now I'm an addict and will be till I die. For the last several years, I have been teaching the game to elementary kids as a volunteer. I worked for Montgomery County Public Schools in MD so that is the connection for after- school chess. My volunteerism has brought me back into playing OTB tournaments. I was out of the game for awhile due to a career change. I moved to Hendersonville in June 2013 and I am running the chess club in that town. I am also teaching the game at a local school in Hendersonville.
