Mrs. Moore's Chess Club


Mrs. Moore's Chess Fund

Education was her passion. Chess Club was the vehicle she used for rewarding her students in math. It was by invitation only and her students worked hard to receive that invitation. She understood Chess wired kid’s brains into being problem solvers and it was her desire to see it spread throughout the community. We are honoring her legacy as a gifted Teacher by starting Mrs. Moore’s Chess Club Foundation, which will help schools receive funding to open their own Chess Club.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support.
