The Folger Shakespeare Library is looking for a dynamic person to head a

program in the History of the Book for university undergraduates; and 
develop new ways of using the unique Folger collection and performing arts 
resources. He or she will represent the Folger nationally to a diverse 
community of educational partners--foundations, government funding 
agencies such as the NEH, educational institutions and organizations, 
teachers, and library visitors. Working collaboratively with Folger 
Development, the Director of Education will seek out funding opportunities 
and participate in grant-writing. Duties include Folger docent recruitment 
and training; oversight of Folger educational publications, online and 
print; improvement of visitor services.

The Director of Education reports to the Director and works collegially 
with 5 other division heads.

Salary: low $100s; excellent benefits.

Desired qualifications: Ph.D. in English, Theater Arts, or D. Ed. strongly 
preferred, minimum of seven years experience in successful program 
leadership, development, management, and assessment--preferably for a 
national educational or cultural organization.  Teaching experience at 
elementary or secondary level required. Broad knowledge of national 
educational trends and of Shakespeare pedagogy essential.  Some experience 
in the role and use of technology in teaching Shakespeare useful.
