A particular area of emphasis that the candidate would work on is a review of our spring education programs to make sure they comply with current curriculum standards. A series of factors has caused us to take another look at our spring education programs and the site would like a candidate with strong skills in developing a plan to help us do so. The Teacher Ranger Teacher would work with other area teachers to make recommendations for revision to our program.The candidate would also make recommendations as to which technologies the site should be using to better reach out to students. Two other areas we would like assistance in is helping us to organize a teacher workshop, and participation in a week-long junior ranger program that is held annually. During National Park Week of 2014, the teacher will make a presentation about the NPS and their partnership experience to their local school district.
