"We are here for fun. If it gets too stressful or too tense, we will call it work and get paid for it."

I teach at Matt Ross Community Center, Blue Valley Community Center, Leawood Community Center and the new Meadowbrook Clubhouse. During the summer months, I teach workshop, one topic, classes.

 

If all goes well, I'll be teaching beginning bridge four evenings a week starting the end of August/first part of September. When my schedule permits, I give private lessons.  For example: How to play No Trump OR No Trump Conventions-Stayman and Jacoby Transfer.

I am an ACBL Accredited Bridge Instructor with 25 years of experience. I am also accredited by Audrey Grant's Better Bridge Group. I have passed my club director's test. I am a member of American Bridge Teachers Association (ABTA). I served as the New Player Services Coordinator at the March 2017 NABC in Kansas City.

 

I have served on the Unit 131 Board of Directors, organized Unit Games, Sectionals and two ABA/ACBL joint tournaments. I have held every office on the Board, except President. I worked on the Board in the 1990's, so I have been around for a long time. I have helped with the Duplicate Bridge Test Drives and Learn Bridge in a Day.
