How to get teachers involved in EdTech?

Currently cultivating an EdTech startup but would love to have a seasoned teacher on board to give some great insights in the Education industry. Does anyone know of a place/service to recruit teachers for EdTech startups?

My company has provided this as a service. We have over 130 educators from across the globe, though mostly in the US. Most of our services are directly targeted towards schools but we also provide support for vendors with their products, including the design and delivery of professional development, ROI analysis and white paper creation.

I'm a former classroom teacher and technology specialist - where I helped teachers integrate technology in the classroom. (However, I've not been in the classroom or schools for quite some time, I do still speak "teacher")

Really happy to hear you say this. This is a topic that's near and dear to my heart (I've written about it http://www.edudemic.com/why-we-need-edupreneurs/, and at one point I was looking at starting a company to get more teacherpreneurs into ed tech). If you'd like to put out a recruitment call for teachers, I can post this on the Twitter feed for the publication I do a lot of writing for, which has a big following of ed tech-loving teachers. If you'd like me to do that, please message me directly with a link to the description of what you're looking for, and any social pages they can use to contact you.

There are some great EdTech Twitter chats. This list may not be 100% up-to-date, but will give you an idea of what's out there and places to look:

Hi Ryan, I friend forwarded me this chain. I spent six years in the NYC public school system followed by three years at McKinsey as a consultant. I've got a good sense of what works both in the business space and the education space (which I want to return to). Feel free to reach out if you would like to chat.
Best,
Andrea

Hi I have taught for 15 years, in two different states, in three different school systems (urban, suburban, and rural), and in the elementary and middle school level. I currently teach grades k-6, run data for class room teachers, teach academic gifted, and I am on a few different committees. If you need someone to bounce ideas off please message me.

EdTech is a catalyst for innovation - but not for the reason you are thinking. It is a wedge into a "privatized" classroom where instructional design can help improve student activities. It is much less alarming than if an administrator were to coming knocking on a teacher's door and ask to discuss their curriculum.
