Teachers needed for frugal, traditional and sustainable living arts at The Old School

The Old School, an academy of frugal, traditional and sustainable living arts, is forming and it needs teachers!
Please look through the list below and let me know if you or someone you know might be interested in teaching a class or series of classes in a subject or subjects. Teachers will receive compensation AND a share of proceeds.
I'm looking for experts (or near experts) who can present their topics with a spirit of engaging optimism and practicality. This is a great opportunity for people who make a living or already teach in these fields to reach potential clients, but any teacher will need to respect the goal of teaching over salesmanship.
Interested in taking a few classes? Great. They will be affordable and fun! A schedule will be prepared once teachers are secured. And I hope to launch with a website and workshop sampling day sometime in late April.
Please throw all suggestions (class topic I missed?) and questions my way. And please pass this e-mail freely.
