Educators - First Episode

Web (Full Length Episode) – 2019

Comedian Jesse Griffin went behind the camera to direct this largely improvised web series, about incompetent school teachers. Griffin developed Educators with his wife Jackie van Beek and friend Jonny Brugh; they also star as hopeless teacher Robyn, and clueless principal Jarred. In this first episode, Robyn ditches her high school class to flirt with a bullying PE teacher (Rick Donald), while teenager Maia (Charlotte McDonald) is mortified to see her dad (Paul Glover) join her class as an adult student. Comedians Kura Forrester, Tom Sainsbury and Cohen Holloway feature among the teaching staff.

I’m not going to be in your face or anything. I’ll just play four square with the boys.
– Robert (Paul Glover) tries to reassure daughter Maia (Charlotte McDonald) that his presence as an adult student won't cause a problem
