Museum Educator & Assistant

Historic Newton seeks a Museum Educator and Assistant to work at both its locations—the Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds.

The position encompasses two roles. As Educator, one prepares, presents, and develops education programs for learning groups from a variety of backgrounds, interests, and ages through passionate interest in historical accuracy, connecting with learners, and expanding personal knowledge; and, as Museum Assistant, the position greets, orients, and assists visitors and callers while maintaining a safe, clean museum environment and being on hand to address routine questions, unforeseen occurrences, and any emergencies.

Historic Newton is a public-private partnership between the Newton Historical Society and the City of Newton and an equal opportunity employer.
Interpersonal skills, including effective communication with an extremely diversified audience, are vital in this combined position. Organizational ability and enthusiasm for exploring history are also important.
