Educators, want to spend your summer with the National Park Service?

We're offering a unique opportunity to spend a summer Governors Island National Monument developing curricula related to the historic and natural resources we protect. Spend time researching the longest-running military base in US History, designing and piloting new curricula, earning graduate school credit, and working with visitors and students in the park. It's called Teacher-Ranger-Teacher--find out more here!
