Education Directors and Museum Teachers

Advancement Prospects

Once in the education department, most people learn much of their work on the job. Experience in working with different people and groups becomes very important. Education directors must continually improve their understanding of their own institution's collection so that they can present it to school and other groups in the best way possible. Some education directors work for the federal government in specific subject areas such as aeronautics, science, or technology. They must be proficient in these fields as well as in education. With considerable experience and advanced education, education directors might advance to become curators or work in executive-level positions.
