I'd like to offer help as a mentor.
I'm a math professor, but I do more math education than research these days. I like working with teachers, especially elementary and middle school teachers. Last Saturday I taught an allday class on clock arithmetic for K8 teachers. One of the participants, after returning from a break, said, "This is the only class in the building where people are smiling." I guess this means the class was a success. You can see a course outline at http://www.math.csusb.edu/faculty/susan/modular/clock_course.html
This summer I'm writing Web pages, both fleshing out my clock arithmetic stuff, and building a site on tessellations (inspired by Suzanne Alejandre's pages at the Forum. She was a participant in the Summer '95 institute, though I claim credit for her first HTML lesson (brag, brag!))
Particular Web issues I'm interested in: creating materials that are useful to teachers and students (comments welcome on my stuff) sites that explore a mathematical topic in depth, in a way that students and teachers are encouraged to learn actively, instead of just looking at cool pictures Where's the Math? Too many things on the Web are *just* cool pictures, with connections to the math curriculum unmentioned and unexplained
