By Bill Rogers. PreK—K , 1—2 , 3—5 , 6—8. Like every teacher, I know how crucial a task it is to develop the smooth running of a class.

In many ways, "home" had become a tenuous concept for him, thanks largely to the collision he alluded to, a collision that was both fierce and final. Indeed, when the clothing company that bore his name staggered across the finish line a year ago, drained of cash and oxygen and wobbling on its last legs, it looked less like a veteran marathoner than the victim of a street mugging.

But life changed drastically for Brandt and much of the entertainment industry in March, when work ground to a halt as the coronavirus swept across the country. Movie theaters have gone dark, soundstages have shut their doors and productions have been delayed indefinitely, leaving tens of thousands of people like Brandt jobless and forced to navigate a grim economic landscape. You have to string together enough work and keep auditioning in order to keep going. In the meantime, Brandt has filed for unemployment and obtained deferrals on his mortgage and car lease payments.
