The Educational Programs Teacher works closely with the Director of Education by conducting field trip programs either on-site or in the classroom. Our educational programs comply with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements and teach students the past, present, and future of rail travel, how railroads built communities, and introduces concepts such as economics, logistics, and engineering.
An applicant for the position preferably has a familiarity with teaching and audio visual technology. One must also be able to engage groups of children (30-70) at a time for approximately an hour. Do not worry museum staff and fellow volunteers will provide training and share our knowledge with you.
MAR has established a 3 rd grade program with Frisco ISD and we are looking at expanding into the 7 th grade for the future.
A typical 3 rd grade program sees 120 kids at the museum from approximately 9:30-12. Half of them are outside in the train yard and half inside the museum for an hour at a time. You are in the indoor part.
An application and background check form must be filled out by potential volunteers. If selected for an interview, a staff member will contact you. If selected after the interview process, you will begin a probationary period. After completing 30 hours of volunteer work and satisfactorily meeting museum standards you will become a permanent volunteer.
