Part-time Museum Educator (Old Sturbridge Village)

Do you love working with children? Looking for a stable, regular, part-time job in an energy-filled, social work environment? Come join the education staff of Old Sturbridge Village – New England’s largest living history museum.

OSV is looking to add experienced educators for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Extended Day Program and the Learning Through Experiences Program. Both programs are for students who attend Old Sturbridge Academy, a Kindergarten through 6th grade public charter school located on the Old Sturbridge Village campus.

The Learning Through Experience (LTE) program is an immersive, educational program that occurs every Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00am-2:30pm. Each educator team of 3 is paired with 4 classes of students that they remain with for the entire school year, teaching 1 hour thematic, hands-on lessons that utilize the museum campus.

The 21st Century Learning Centers Program (21st CCLC) is a Massachusetts Department of Education funded afterschool enrichment program. The program runs Monday-Thursday from 2:30-5:00pm and there is additional planning and meeting time built into the schedule. This is a project-based program where educators work with a group of 10 or less students during the school year adapting and teaching a curriculum developed by Old Sturbridge Village.

Currently, both programs are in-person with the potential to shift to a remote learning program if needed. Remote learning sessions are conducted live via Zoom from the Old Sturbridge Village campus.

The schedule for this position is 20 hours a week Monday and Tuesday, 1:00-5:00 pm and Wednesday and Thursday 11:00-5:00 pm.
