This new award is presented to an Old North Foundation educator who exemplifies the highest standards of our education team, based on several factors including interactions with our visitors, ability to handle daily duties AND unexpected situations, teamwork, reliability and dedication, and presentation skills.
Molly has been utilizing her sunny attitude as an educator for two seasons. As a senior educator, she has played an integral role in acquainting our new educators with their roles and ensuring the successful roll-out of our new Lantern Bearer sticker program. We are proud of her work ethic and rapport with our visitors!
“She does an amazing job of calmly and collectedly handling the unexpected while keeping everything else going … Her interactions with guests demonstrate her passion for history. She has been so helpful to me in so many ways as I’ve been learning the job, and her positive attitude is really inspiring.”
– colleague of Molly’s
Molly graduated from Oberlin College in May 2013 with a degree in Archaeological Studies and Latin Language and Literature with a minor in Art History. A four-year varsity lacrosse player, Molly spent two summers excavating in the Italian Abruzzo and one semester teaching English in Beijing, China. Since graduating, she has interned in education and visitor services at MASS MoCA and MoMA PS1, and she also currently works for Archaeology Outreach, a program that travels to Massachusetts schools to do mock excavations with students and teach local history. This coming fall, Molly will be pursuing a masters degree in Archaeology from Yale University and hopes to continue finding ways to incorporate history and archaeology into public education.
