Hi Matt

Id like to actually *do* the workshops, but would also be happy to help out. I am not a (certified) instructor but could help anything else.

Justin is looking for additional people to teach and help at one or more of these sessions. This multi-week workshop is an official R Ecology Data Carpentry and is being organized and ushered by certified instructors. This is a great opportunity to get started teaching with a smaller time commitment:

> Feb 8 - Manipulating Dataframes

We are starting to discuss a summer workshop at the Fort Lauderdale Education and Research Center as well as putting together a week of workshops in August before classes start. These workshops will be advertised on this list. If you know of anyone who would like become involved in teaching, please invite them to join this list:
