|French term or phrase: professeur relais|
|professeur relais de l'Education nationale a la DAEP|
This is the title of the person who wrote the educational dossier for a museum art exhibition. (DAEP is the museum's Direction del'action educative et des publics)
Wherever I have seen this term in French, it is always in association with a museum - basically a professor who works in connection with a particular museum.
|school(s) liaison officer|
If the person concerned is to guide the kids through the museum, it makes sense that she be a qualified teacher (for any number of reasons). I'm not sure all the people listed below ARE teachers, since some (at least one) appears to be a purely admin role liaising with teachers and schools, not with kids.

|Thanks to Bourth, Vaughn and juliebarba for the helpful comments. I agree this sounds most like what you see in anglo museum circles. I had originally thought professor, because if you read the article this woman wrote, you couldn't imagine any school-aged child understanding what on earth she is driving at (or adults for that matter!), but obviously since she is affiliated with the E.N., she is the equivalent of a teacher. Many thanks to all.|

The term is also used in France for other arts.

Mara, I answered before your note popped up. In my personal experience, at the secondary level, "teacher" seems to be more common than "professor", which comparison googling seems to verify. Professor is more often used for the university level.
