History Educator: Livestock Educator
This first-person interpretive position involves working with the museum’s farm animals,
which include two Mammoth Jack Stock donkeys, a small flock of sheep and three flocks of
chickens. Educators work in character while wearing nineteenth-century clothing. Portraying
Mr. or Mrs. Clementine, the livestock educator hitches the donkeys to their wagon and gives
rides around the museum to visitors. Other donkey care activities include combing, weekly
bathing and hoof cleaning. This educator may also demonstrate the care of the other animals,
and discuss our heritage breeds and the role of livestock in our historic period. When
available, this position may also assist other history educators with their gardens.
The ideal candidate must enjoy interacting with the public in a friendly and educational
manner. Asssist visitors as they learn about history by sharing relevant historical
knowledge while engaging in appropriate livestock activities.
This is an hourly paid position working approximately 15 hours per week, including weekend
work, for the 35 weeks a year when the museum operates with a full history educator staff.
History Educators do not work regularly during two off-season periods, July and February.
The Village is closed to the public in August and January. History Educators may have the
opportunity to teach classes and workshops outside of regularly scheduled hours. The livestock
