No, I am an English teacher in CT, USA with less than a year of Linux use experience.
My only development experience whatever is webdev and pretty amateur at that.

I'm certainly willing to learn, but I am afraid that being a teacher, grad uate student and single parent leaves me with little time to devote to it. I wish I had more time, as I am really eager to learn, frankly.

no skills, no experience...only willingness to learn

I really would like to learn how to conribute to development and even documentation.
Also, I distribute various OSS on CD from my site, http://www.school-library.net , so I am willing to promote and distribute software to schools in the US.
I wish to contribute to the toppling of hte evil empire, M$, and, especially, relesasing their stranglehold on our schools.
