Leslie Shafer Wins the 2016 BRIDGE TEACHER OF THE YEAR Award!!
July 19, 2016 at the
American Bridge Teachers’ Association Convention in DC!
I was so pleased to have been chosen for this honor. It has truly been one of the greatest privileges I have had in life, to teach others about the wonderful game of bridge. A big THANK YOU to all of you who helped to make this happen. Your encouragement of my efforts is very much appreciated!
This site is a clearinghouse of information on classes being run by Leslie Shafer and Charlie Williams. If you have any questions that you don’t see addressed on this website, please let me know. The best years of my life started when I began to teach bridge full time, about 25 years ago, meeting all of you and making so many new friends. What a blessing it is to be able to love your job. Not only is bridge a wonderful sport, but we have found that for many students, it has enriched their own personal social contacts. Our mission statement is to spread the love of bridge to everyone. Thanks for your time. — Leslie
