Per-diem Educator

The World Awareness Children’s Museum is in need of a Per-Diem Educator!

The World Awareness Children’s Museum is a cultural museum for kids! Our museum is home to artifacts from all over the world and over 8,000 pieces of child-made art from over 100 countries, dating back to 1988.

Educators also teach our Virtual Classroom Programs for classrooms around the country, from the comfort of a dedicated Virtual Classroom office in our building.
