Teachers of TN: Christina Mullinax

“I was inspired to be a teacher by my chess coach in high school. He was always there for us, pushing us to get better, to achieve that next level in chess and academics. I hope that I am doing the same with my own chess club. I think back to what he did for us in high school and try to replicate that in my own class and with my own students.”
