    Who are we looking for?

    A presenter must have an extremely high work ethic with a “show must go on” mentality along with a love and passion for educating. They must be flexible and able to address daily hardships in a positive, encouraging way. They must possess the intrinsic ability to make the best of any situation and to “light up the room” with an exuberant presence.

    A snapshot of what’s required

    • Ability to travel to elementary and middle schools throughout your expanded presenter area and to welcome up to four weeks or more 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 can require long distances (drive time can range from 15-120 minutes one direction). 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. No credential is required, but presenters must be self-motivated as learners and educators. We will train you for the presentations and material 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.
