I was the 1989 U.S. Women's Chess Champion. Before earning my Ph.D. in education, I taught high school social studies and English and ran the school's chess club. I have written seven books on chess in education. I teach online courses about chess in education for UT Dallas; the courses have been taken by students all over the world. I am available for talks, chess exhibitions, and presentations; please contact me.
