· Membership in the Georgia Chess Association for seven years;

· Chess Summer Camp Counselor with instructors that included Chess Grand Masters.

Irah uses a curriculum that is designed to improve the skills of the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. This curriculum has produced two National Champions.

Irah has a deep love of the game of chess. His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious especially when he speaks or writes about his experiences coaching children (see quote below).

“I believe that every child is special and has a deep need to be acknowledged for their accomplishments. We have a unique opportunity to be a positive influence in children's lives. Chess is a special game for many reasons. It teaches good sportsmanship, and has been proven to enhance creativity, problem solving, memory, concentration, intellectual maturity and self esteem. This proves what all of us involved in chess have been saying for years…CHESS MAKES YOU SMART!!!”

Irah’s class "Fun with Chess" (for K-8) will meet:

Tuesdays 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm, beginning January 19th and ending March 2nd.
