My Students

Many of my students are interested in being challenged and like to be creative with the way they are learning. I have discovered that many students enjoy and benefit most when learning is made fun.

Students benefit from different activities that help them make connections within the classroom.

Some of these activities include extracurricular engagements such as playing chess with the school Chess Club. The Elementary Chess club includes any students in fourth and fifth grade that would like to join. We meet weekly and not only learn how to play the game of chess but we encourage and challenge each other through the process. No matter the skill level, we are learning and enjoying our time together too.

My Project

Our Elementary Chess Club students who aspire to meet the challenge of playing chess will be better prepared for tournaments and every day chess playing with tournament style chess sets and chess timers. Each week the chess club meets and practices playing chess. Not only is this fun, but also challenging and exciting.

Studies have shown that playing chess can increase a students ability to meet challenges in every day life along with challenges in both reading and mathematics.

Research and studies have also shown that playing chess fosters logic, critical thinking, improves concentration, and memory all while encouraging and rewarding hard work.
