How to become a drum teacher

Are there any drum teachers out there that can add to this discussion? I'm interested in giving drum lessons to make some extra income. I'm not a professional or anything but I would imagine that you need to be a solid player in order to get a teaching gig anywhere.

Here's the list I came up with for steps and qualifications to teaching drums professionally. Feel free to add to the list.

-know how to read music and drum notations. This is probaly the most important step to teach at a drum school.
-have played drums and percussion for at least 10 years. No one wants to hire a newbie.
-know all the different types of music and styles.
-can play all of the rudiments by heart
-be at an older age. Someone who is 40 probaly has the advantage over someone who is 20
-experience as a drummer. Theory is great but without experience it means nothing
-having good connections with other teachers or drum organizations certainly helps as well
