For those tatters contemplating teaching at the Lacis event in 2016 here is more info about how the expenses and fees are figured. Notice: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art301068.asp Clarification for Tatters! From: Erin Algeo To: erin Date: Tue, Sep 22, 2015 6:37 pm Hello, again, Tatters, I've encountered some questions that I think need some clarification and I apologize if it was not clear before. I know it is confusing, every teaching location has a different way of doing things. There are always lots of questions about compensation. Which we want you to have, of course! I understand it is kind of a charged thing, it's never easy to talk about money. I'll explain again how it works. Yes, the way we have it set up here is to have the teacher organize their own transport, hotel, food, everything! On top of that they add their teaching fee. They tell me the total amount. Along with the information from the teacher's worksheet regarding their minimum and maximum amount of students, I figure out how many students I need to get in the class. That is the first point that I understand is causing confusion. Here's an example. If a teacher needs to get $2000.00 in all, I know I need 10 students at $200.00 each in order to meet the teachers amount. Or if a teacher needs to get $2000.00 but says the maximum number of students they are willing to teach is 2, I know I need to get 2 students at $1000.00 each. The reason I need to know how much the teacher needs in order to come (transport, food, hotel, teacher's fee, etc, all bundled together) when I receive the proposal is so that we can make decisions about whether a class is doable or not. I hope that clarification helps. More to come... The reason I want to know how many students I need to meet all the teacher's needs is so that no one, the teacher or Lacis, is a loser if the class does not get enough students. In advance, Lacis and the teacher come up with a date where we check in and figure out if we have enough students for the class to go ahead. If so the teacher goes ahead and books their flight, hotel and anything else they must in advance. Not until then! That way everybody wins. The teacher does pay for their own flight, hotel, food, etc, but recieves their takens at the end of class. Because the cost of the class covered all their expenses and included their teaching fee, the teacher has everything they need. So don't be shy! Please be as descriptive as you can. And include the amount you need to receive. I'm happy to answer anymore questions. If more than one person asks me the same thing I send it out in a mass email. Thank you!
