Covid-19 has affected all of us, including teachers and students.
The unfortunate reality is that many teachers are being forced to go to even greater lengths to keep students engaged in a virtual-learning setting.
I am a voice over actor, impressionist and comedian, and if you are an educator, I would like to do my part to make your life easier.
I will provide “video lessons” for you to drop into your virtual lesson plans, in character, to help you keep your students engaged and entertained.
“Emperor Palpatine” teaching Geometry!
“Matthew McConaughey” teaching Physics!
“Goofy” teaching long division!
“Dr. Fauci” explaining the circulatory system!
Tell me which of the various celebrity and animated characters you’d like to “teach” your students, I’ll try to make it happen. Check out the tweets below to hear a few of the impressions I can do for your students.
A Quick List Of Voices I Can Do
-Stand Up Comedian John Mulaney
-Joe Exotic (Tiger King)
-Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)
-Barney The Dinosaur
-Kermit The Frog
-George W. Bush
-Various accents and “character voices”
….and I specialize in improvisation.
So, basically, you send me a “lesson” for me to voice as a character (usually a minute or two), I make a video, send it back to you, and you embed it right there in your lesson.
Sound like something you’d be interested in? Shoot me an email and we’ll get this thing going.

Let’s do this!
Took a break from reading Trump tweets as #EmperorTrumpatine to help one of my high school-teaching followers with some "Dark Side Distance Learning." Want a personalized video? Then continue to do my bidding, and I'm happy to oblige. DEWIT!— Andy Harris (@THEAndyHarris) July 13, 2020

"Voice Time" with the 4 year old. Guess which voice I'm never allowed to do "because he's a bad guy." Guess. pic.twitter.com/7NAyi90usP— Andy Harris (@THEAndyHarris) June 20, 2020
Interested? Well, while you’re thinking about it, check out the wonderful things “Alice’s Kids” is doing.
From Their Website, AlicesKids.org
Alice’s Kids is a non-profit organization that provides short-term financial assistance to children with immediate needs. Relying on referrals from a large network of teachers, social workers and counselors, Alice’s Kids pays for the desired item and, to preserve the dignity of the child, we do so anonymously.
Our goal is to help raise the self-esteem of a child in need. Children with healthy self-esteem feel good about themselves. They do better in school. They are more successful.
We believe a little help can go a long way.
