Brentwood Boiling Springs Academy Virtual Tour 2021

This position has been filled and they are no longer taking applications.

The City of Brentwood and the Brentwood Historic Commission is seeking part-time help to assist with field trips at Boiling Springs Academy.

According to a city news release, the paid position will take place on various dates throughout Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, with hours ranging from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The position will specifically see applicants assist with field trips for third grade students.

According to Brentwood City Commissioner and Brentwood Historic member Anne Dunn, each year 25-30 third grade classes are invited to spend a day  at the historic school house where they will learn about history in an immersive and hands-on experience.

"We are seeking to expand our roster of school marms who conduct the classes," Dunn said in an email. "These retired or former teachers bring their classroom experience to the program and are accountable for much of its success. A curriculum is provided and each teacher can choose days. This paid position involves about 4 1/2 hours per day with an aide and the class’s regular teacher also on site."

Anyone interested in the position should email Historic Commission member Carole Crigger at [email protected].

Earlier this year the city launched a new virtual tour of Boiling Spring Academy.

The free virtual experience allows users to explore the historic school building and surrounding grounds in 360 degrees, as well prompts to learn about specific historic items such as the dunce cap, oil lamp, and the McGuffey Reader.
