Knowledge and passion for Delaware history. Ability to communicate well and speak in front of an audience is a plus! Docents must be enthusiastic, reliable, and willing to learn. They should have an interest in working with people, especially students of all ages and individuals of diverse backgrounds. Experience in education, teaching, and/or prior work as a Docent/Interpreter can be helpful, although not required.
