Lee Nicole Salinis
I have a bachelors is Psychology from Chestnut Hill College Summa Cum Laude 2011, where I founded the first chess club on record “Crown the King, Chess Club”. Since then I have taught 3 years in preschools both in Hawaii and Philadelphia, wrote The Book They Drive Me Nuts! ( TheyDriveMeNuts.com ) And founded Emotional Intelligence Magazine ( EmoIntelMag.com ). I kept my passion for chess alive through the years playing with friends, especially my old Co-founder/VP whom I taught how to play. After leaving the classroom for a few years to pursue publications I realized I missed working with children, as well having chess regularly in my life. What better way to bring both back than joining forces with Shining Knights to help train the next generation of grand masters!
