FAQs for Instructors

Why should I become a teacher at Make Santa Fe?
You are giving people the ability to make. You would teach people how to safely and effectively use tools. You’re helping your community, having fun and making some money doing something you already love to do.

Can I set my own class schedule?
We will work with you to find times that don’t conflict other classes, and can offer input as to what has worked well in the past.

How much could I make?
Make pays its instructors a modest fee based on teacher contact hours and type of class offered.  Once we’ve determined the course we’ll discuss the structure with you.

Would I have help advertising my classes?
We do publicity for all our classes and reach most students through our website or email newsletters. Instructors who reach out to their own network and put some effort into marketing do see a pay off for their efforts as well.

We’re teaching sometimes dangerous processes. As an instructor, is my liability protected?
Our waivers and insurance indemnify your actions, so long as you are not acting in gross negligence. Make Santa Fe has general liability insurance insuring ‘natural born persons acting as instructors or consultants.’
