For your lesson plans or participation, you may use mine or a version of your own, please include "Hashtag Chess" by #Chess and your social media, regular media, and so on.
I am also listed by "Hashtag AndreaPhD" #AndreaPhD "Hashtag Andrea Pearson-Haas" #AndreaPearsonHaas "Hashtag AEPH" #AEPH, and so on
Lesson 8: Photos
