Improv Skills for Educators

Improv Skills for Educators

Dressel Elementary School (map)

Come learn new Improv games, strategies and activities to build community with your colleagues and students!

Improv is so much more than comedy.  It's learning about discomfort, agreeing and running with an idea, it's truly listening to another person, it's empathy and putting yourself in another person's shoes.  You know what else?  It's FUN!  It'll make you laugh, it'll change how you interact with students.

It all starts with:

1.  Accept every offer.

2.  Make your partner look good.

Great rules for a classroom, great rules for life!

Come join us, do some improv and learn about how you can bring these tools to students in your school and classroom!

Are you a lifelong learner? Of course you are....

Do you enjoy socializing with others? Well, yes 

Then Books and Brew is for you!  Join us for an afternoon enjoying handcrafted wines or beers and handcrafted words that will impact the way you teach. Similar to pairings with wine and cheese, books will be paired with a corresponding brew. Books will be available to peruse along with a summary and description of how they are similar to the brew they had been paired with. Educators are encouraged to sample the books and share the professional reading they have partaken with others. Each participant will receive one free drink. Books will be available as prizes following the conclusion of the event.

"Whose Streets?" Documentary Screening

"Whose Streets?" Documentary Screening

Saint Louis Public Library (map)

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions  and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance.  Learn more here
