You Can Do a Public Service!
Posted 8/18/15

Earn between $50 and $75 an hour on your own terms, that is, when you wish, where you wish, without any imposition, quota or participation fee.  The charity Optimizing Education, Montebello, California, is co-developing a service for teachers in the classroom, "teaching tours", whereby interested retired teachers, using WiFi, Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout, would give real-time tours to teachers and children hundreds or thousands of miles away, thereby enriching children's learning without teachers and parents stressing about cost, available time, health or safety.  This service would be useful for underserved children, special-needs children--in fact, most every school-age child.

This service is in development.  Essential to its success is feedback from retired teachers.  There is a quick, anonymous, six-question survey.  Please take the survey at this time.  If your last name ends in A through M, please go to .  If your last name ends in N through Z, please go to .

Thank you for your help.  If you have questions or suggestions, we welcome your contact.  And we thank the California Retired Teachers Association for putting the word out.
