Workshops: Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to sign up and attend workshops at our Park. These will be geared towards helping educators learn about the history of the area, resources available at Castillo de San Marcos and Fort Matanzas, and an overview of the National Park Service. We would like to work with school districts to ensure that educators receive credit towards their professional development requirements for attending the workshops. It is also a possibility for our staff to come to your school and offer a similar workshop. If you are interested in setting up a workshop for your district or group of educators, please e-mail the Educational Coordinator.
Teacher-Ranger-Teacher: The National Park Service teams up with teachers under the TRT Program. The teachers spend their summer working as a Park Ranger and developing curriculum-based material for the Park. Then during the school year, the TRT brings their experience into the classroom. To learn more about these opportunities, visit www.nps.gov/learn/trt/
