Attention Chemistry Teachers
My name is Jackie Shlecter, and I am the Community Lead at 
Socratic.org. Socratic is a community of teachers collaborating to create free and crowdsourced curricula, first for chemistry, eventually for all subjects. I am reaching out to you for your opinion on how best to get in touch with retired chemistry teachers.

I was speaking with my grandmother (a retired teacher), and she recommended I reach out to you. She was excited about our new Q&A platform, for which we are crowdsourcing high-quality answers (here is a sample:http://socratic.org/questions/what-is-the-spdf-configuration-of-co). Specifically, she mentioned that her retired teacher peers would love to still be able to teach students, in any capacity.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for getting in touch with retired Chemistry teachers. I would love to have them join our community of educators.

Many thanks!
