  • Teach at any grade level, but especially those who cover content related to the American Civil War.
  • Are enthusiastic about helping our organization to create excellent, relevant, and useful offerings for teachers and their students, for use on-site at the museums and in the classroom.
  • Can help shape our vision for how we want to best serve educators and their students.
  • Are flexible, creative, innovative, and reflective.

Applications for the 2019–2020 academic school year have closed. Please check back this summer for 2020-2021 application deadlines or email us for more information.
