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.

How to Apply

To apply, submit a resume and cover letter in PDF format to Linh Fanger, Director of Education, at Include “Field Trip Instructor” in the subject line. Finalists for instructor positions will be required to present a demonstration lesson at the Museum as part of their application process.
