I would like to be a teacher. Snowflake: of technology, to adults, in San Francisco, during evenings.

In the past, I've really enjoyed teaching clients and colleagues about the fundamentals of computing. While my current job is very rewarding, it does not provide an outlet for this.
I have a strong resume of roles that required explaining technical topics to lay audiences, but no formal classroom experience. Teaching runs in the family, though, so I understand that it's a non-trivial commitment. Most details are flexible, but my work situation requires that class be accessible by public transportation and begin after 6 PM.
I would prefer to write my own curriculum, but am happy to gain experience and credibility teaching "programming." Ideas for creative venues are welcome, too: community college, skill share, prison, religious organization, library, you name it, though it would be great to work with students under forty. In general, I'd rather meet awesome people and feel challenged than see a dime for the effort.
