Chess Queen Program at Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart



Hello to all!

After 3 weeks of traveling in Russia, I'm back to Miami again.

Yesterday, September 15, I had the tremendous pleasure to start my chess program at the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Miami. I had two presentation lessons for the Montessory-Primary girls and their parents and Intermediate and Junior High students and their parents. Everybody, including myself, was very excited. There is a special and wonderful atmosphere in the school, there are so many girls who are motivated in getting the best education, I immediately felt at home among them.


Here are a few words about Carrollton: "Sacred Heart education is a formation for life. Knowing that life is filled with joy and with sorrow, with challenges and with blessings, what education will most effectively prepare students for the future? We think it's a life rooted in prayer and values. We are convinced that the quality of the future depends on the choices to be made by well-educated, thinking, confident people. We want our students to become such leaders. Nothing short of excellence in their education will prepare them to assume such leadership."


My dream is one day to lead a scholastic team of young girls to victory in a national chess competition, and to have my team be called the "Chess Queens"!

I hope that learning chess will help these wonderful girls in becoming better, disciplined and motivated young ladies.

    Can you please give us more details on what your chess program details? Will you, or others, be teaching the interested young ladies how to play chess over a number of weeks or months?
