Fellow EdTA Members,Looking for fun curriculum fillers and engaging discussions in this online world?Like some of us here, I'm cut back drastically on hours. So, if anyone would like to help me fill up my schedule so I'm not bored to death, I'm happy to pop in your online sessions as a guest speaker or guest instructor for a bit! For free. Simply put, I'm a theatre, comedy, acting nerd.I'm happy to perhaps lead some improv comedy workshops (games, long form, short form, overview, in-depth), sketch writing, or talk about being an actor in Hollywood! Discussions could be life as an artist, how I survive (working on Fox's 9-1-1), teaching, and my work with the Department of Defense as the comedy coach with the Air Force Wounded Warrior Program teaching applied improv. [See Links Below]
Also, I'm doing a LOT of family-friendly improv comedy shows with ComedySportz St. Louis (my hometown) remotely. If any of your students would like to watch a Friday or Saturday evening match, let me know and I'll get you the link to share (free). This could make for good extra credit assignment and discussion the following Monday.

Would you like to do some improv games with a group of kids who usually go to school in Shenzhen, China, but are now scattered across the globe? We usually do improv games on Friday night China time, but we could adapt.
If you have time and are intersted you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can see what we can work out.
Tonight at 5p Pacific/ 7p Central/ 8p Eastern I'll be hosting the Beverly Hills High School Sophomore Drama Lab Improv Comedy Show. If you'd like to watch an support these students! We'll be asking some audience to play with us, too! <3

@Arden Thomas - hello neighbor! I'd love to pop in there! MAN I WISH COVID WAS GONE! I can;t wait to go see your kiddos IN PERSON! I LOVE teaching workshops and playing! I'll shoot you an e-mail. Also, do you want a list of online games?!
As for the BHHS school show that I led for @Karen Chandler , you could : a.) join her performers group on fb where we shared the live feed, or 2.) I could e-mail it to you perhaps. I don't believe anyone has edited it yet (some of her students may and post it in their social medias).
I'll write a testimonial for BJ. We worked with him in April over zoom and had so much fun! We're planning on doing it again this fall, as soon as we figure out our schedule.
