The Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk seeks an individual to join our team as Museum Educator. This role will begin as a grant-funded position with the intent to grow responsibilities as funding becomes available. To begin, the Museum Educator will primarily oversee a grant-funded project, the Southern Maine Archaeology Resource Initiative, which involves expanding the Museum’s current website to include an engaging and accessible forum for the ongoing archaeological work in southern Maine.
The Museum Educator will curate content for the site by working with staff and outside consultants; build site pages; and create related curriculum-based programming and lesson plans for teachers to use in the classroom; thus creating an all-in-one archaeology resource for public education. Beyond this project, the Museum plans to continue the work of the Museum Educator to provide in-person and digital experiences for adults and children. Other duties may include assisting with special events, visitor services, offsite outreach programs, and leading field trips as needed.
Experience in Museum Education, Public Education and WordPress preferred. This role is a perfect fit for someone passionate about learning and engaging the public. Excellent communication skills with an ability to adapt lessons and tours to different ages, learning styles, and abilities. Willingness and flexibility to deliver programs virtually through Zoom, or other platforms. Comfort and confidence to deliver programs to both adults and children. Graduate students encouraged to apply.
Part-Time: Position is five (5) hours per week, $20 per hour; with potential for expansion
