      Hello again.... the class list is taking shape. BUT, I still have class
      space available. So if you have something to teach (hands on or
      theoretical, come share it. Send me an email and I can fit you in.

      You don't have to be a veteran teacher. There are several new teachers on
      the roster. This is a good opportunity to get your feet wet. So dive in
      and get a soaker. =)
