An interpreter has a grounding in the liberal arts, and keeps current with the news (local, regional, national, international), to better relate to a diverse consortium of visitors.


An interpreter can communicate excitement for the resource and inspire a response. An interpreter is deeply concerned with the welfare of visitors –their safety, their dignity- the quality of their experiences. He or she interpreters imaginatively by knowledge and personal example.
