Chess Teacher Shares Her Experience Using the MATCH Curriculum

Krystal Thomas was an undergraduate student with minimal experience with chess when she started teaching chess. She taught for several years as a part of a collaborative research project (learn more about that here and here) that used our curriculum. She also taught as a part of our summer chess camp. She is now a Ph.D. student at Virginia Commonwealth University and is part of the team analyzing data from the chess research project mentioned above. Throughout, she has been a highly valued part of the team. As she mentions in the video, when she started teaching chess she was a little uncertain, but she jumped right in and did an amazing job. Now she’s helping teach new team members how to use the curriculum to engage students. Thank you, Krystal!
