Wow, it's commercial confession time. I generally comment about what teaching's like, since I do it as a part-time stringer captain for a brokerage here (New Orleans) who runs classes to get people interested in the sport. If someone asks where to get lessons around here I'll tell them, but I don't push it, and I'll certainly disclose that I work for brokerage A as an instructor. There are other adult ed. classes here I've taught in too, they're fine and I'll recommend them too. Or I might even recommend someone just go out and learn on their own. I did.

My opinions here are my own. I teach because I like it, certainly not for the money, which isn't that much. I have a 100-ton Aux. Sail license, did 7 years active and 13 Reserve in the Coast Guard.

Hope that's "transparent" enough (people see through me anyway)
