My Chess Teaching Background

I've taught at ten different schools across the tri-state area with students ranging in age from five to thirteen years-old. In February 2013, I began to develop PS 217's scholastic program and team. After my first year, enrollment more than tripled, not including those turned away due to lack of space. I also formed three clubs outside of the school and coached 217 students at every tournament they competed in. This year enrollment has skyrocketed even further, but I had to turn down their offer to return for a third year due to a dream job offer. Currently my schedule only permits one teaching commitment: developing a team at Packer Collegiate Institute.

What began as a side project is now a beloved part of my livelihood.
