I'd love to find someone to interview for a class assignment (due Thursday), about problem solving in teaching English as a second/foreign language in a classroom. There seem to be a few experienced ESL teachers around here, and it would be awesome to be able to talk to one on the phone here in the US. Would it be appropriate to look for an interviewee via AskMe?

It's just a short, relatively informal paper, not a huge deal, but it would be very convenient to be able to find someone this way. I have a contact in a local elementary school, but scheduling is difficult and I'm not sure my interests lie that way.
There seem to be a lot of Korean students here in Durham/Chapel Hill NC, so I'd particularly like to find someone who's returned from teaching in Korea or another Asian country.
It doesn't really seem to fit AskMe, though. I figured I'd ask here just in case it was OK.
And, yes, it would be awesome if someone saw this post and was interested... I'll send you some Chapel Hill Toffee or some homemade cookies if you want! Or a copy of my "Natural America" trivia question activity card set!
