A New Community for Theatre Educators

• December 26th, 2020

Many of you know that we have a business called Educational Theatre Consultants. We teach professional development, do one-act play clinics, write lesson plans, and offer help to theatre educators. With this new development, we realized that it is time to take our business to the next level, so we are taking it all online.

 Have you ever sat through an in-service or professional development workshop that didn’t help you at all? We all know that feeling, so we are creating an online Theatre Professional Learning Community, and we are calling it EdTC Community.

We're really excited about it because at this point in our careers we find ourselves wanting to work with teachers. I mean, we love our students, but we have 59 years of experience, and we really enjoy sharing it with other educators. It will launch January 1, 2021. We are going online and want to give Afterpiece listeners the first chance to check it out with a free trial during the holiday break.

With this community membership, you will get

  1. A professional development webinar each month
  2. A health & wellness session each month
  3. Access to lesson plans & guest speakers
  4. Q & A Happy Hours
  5. Access to our two most popular online classes
  6. And most importantly, A professional learning community for sharing ideas and asking advice

 We know you're going to benefit greatly from being a part of the EdTC Community. You can learn from us, you can learn from other members, AND, most importantly, you can offer your stories, experiences, and ideas to help other theatre educators. AND YOUR SCHOOL AND PAY FOR IT; it's tax fee. 

A few things you’ll see quickly that make Educational Theatre Consultants different:

 It’s Ours. As we build this community together, we have some great features for creating exclusive content, deeper conversations, richer polls, and online or live events. Plus, by building this community of social media, you can have a more efficient and valuable experience with us and each other.

 There are More Ways for You to Meet Each Other. There are more ways for you to meet people who are near you, who fall into the same categories, or who care about the same topics. You can’t get this in free groups or on a website elsewhere.

  We Can Bring Together Content and Community. By merging content with community, we are able to provide fresh ideas and new practices that you can take into your daily life

We hope you will join us while we all take a holiday break. We will be back with our next episode on January 3, 2021

If you have any comments or questions, please reach out. “Make sure to visit our website, for show notes and links. You can also subscribe to the show in iTunes Google Play, Stitcher, and Podbean.

 Thanks for listening. We’ll be back after the new year. Until then . . . excellencia consuetudo est

This holiday season we’re coming together to support families with special needs children. Due to the pandemic, children with special needs are facing both school closures and disruptions to their in-person therapy sessions, making this time even harder on them and their families.

  • A catered holiday dinner by a locally-owned restaurant
  • A fulfilled holiday wish list
  • A family holiday outdoor photoshoot with a local photographer

The ONEHOPE Foundation is funding 5 grants. If you’d like to help us fund even more, you can shop our fundraiser where 10% of every purchase supports this meaningful cause. Thank you for helping us give a little holiday magic to these deserving families in need.

Annie & I are proud of the impact we’ve been able to make by purchasing our wine from OneHope. It’s really amazing to be part of a movement to make giving back part of what you do every day.
