Museum teacher – why do I want to know?A few weeks back I wrote about Tin Figure museum in this blog. In that museum I spoke with Harry about the education program and how I might be able to improve it. I have a few ideas but I have no experience working for or with a museum.Museum teacher – the expertBecause I have no experience in working for a museum, I wanted to talk to someone who has. So I send an email to Teylers Museum in Haarlem and asked if I could talk to the one who’s in charge of the education program. Apparently I could because a short while later I got an email back from Fieke Kroon. She agreed to see me on the 5th of December at 11 o’clock in the museum.A chat in Teylers museumWe met in the cafe. I sat there with a cup of tea, a few questions and a notebook. A lady walked up to me and asked if I’m Marieke Noordhuis. We talked about who I am and why I emaild her. I explained that I used to be a teacher, I now have my own company, I give workshops and maybe I’ll be working with the Tin Figures museum in the future.Then I could ask her my questions. When she answered one of my questions she also answered a few others. So in no time it became clear to me how I should approach the task of making and finetuning an educational program. She told me I could always come and seek her help if I needed to.Her turnAfter answering all my questions, Fieke had a question for me too; Would I like to work as a substitute workshop leader for Teylers? Of course I want to! What an offer. This is just steps away from my house. I did tell her that I plan on moving to Zwolle. She is going to figure out if I can get travel allowance.What an hour! At 12 o’clock I stepped through the door of my house with a lot of extra knowledge and a new client.
