    A snapshot of what’s required

    • Ability to travel to elementary and middle schools throughout your expanded presenter area and to welcome three to four weeks of overnight stay (full-time positions only). Based on the amount of overnight travel, if you have obligations that require you to stay in a certain area, the full-time position may not be for you.
    • Both full and part-time positions require daily driving (typically within 30 miles one way but can exceed this occasionally) Enjoyment for driving and travel is not a necessity but is helpful.
    • A positive attitude that entails confidence in communicating professionally and enthusiastically with teachers, office managers, and various school staff. Many times you will be required to exercise problem-solving skills to provide helpful solutions that will meet both the needs of the presentation and the customer. The ability to compromise and be flexible is a necessity while also considering company policy.
    • Experience in communications, teaching, and/or performance is helpful.
    • A love for history and educating students. No credential is required, but presenters must be self-motivated as learners and educators. We provide extensive training, but you will experience various situations daily which will develop you as a person and as a speaker.
    • Desire. A desire to work with and motivate kids in a solo 2 1/2 hour presentation, twice daily while developing essential life skills.
    • Enthusiasm. If you have an enthusiastic and energetic personality and are interested in expanding your own knowledge and performance skills, we will provide the intensive training needed to join our team.
