Tough, these days - at least according to all the other instructors I
know. I'm, uh, staying afloat without too many problems - although more
work would definitely be nice.
Not to blow my own horn excessively, but I'm a *damn* good instructor.
According to Sun - and this bit of info came floating up casually this
past winter, as a minor note in the info stream - I'm in the top 1% of
their instructors WRT student satisfaction. *World-wide*, that is.
Gave me a nice feeling (once I got my breath back.) Not bad for one a'
them furriners what don't speak English real good.
