Field Trip Instructor – Part Time
Join us to work with kids and aircraft at the Hiller Aviation Museum!
Field Trip instructors teach hands-on science- and flight-themed lessons to students Grades K-12 while working behind-the-scenes at a unique Museum located at one of California’s busiest small airports. Activities include leading hands-on science lessons for K-8 school groups inside the Hiller Aviation Museum for K-12 school and Scout groups, with seasonal opportunities for expanded hours teaching Aviation Camp if desired.
Instructor positions pay $19 – $22/hr, depending on experience.
Instructors must have experience working with elementary or middle-school children and good classroom management skills. Familiarity with science and/or aviation is a plus but not essential—teachers comfortable with elementary-aged students can readily learn the aerospace-specific content with the provided curriculum and training.
Field trip programs take place weekday mornings, with typical shift times 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Seasonal Aviation Camp shifts are Monday-Friday 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM. Shifts vary based on reservations and instructor availability, but instructors typically work 2-4 days of field trips per week, for a total of 30-40 hours/month. Availability for weekend programs and Aviation Camp is helpful but not required, with additional hours available through shifts for these programs.
