As a means to support professional development for teachers and increased exposure to the parks in public schools, the National Park Service has developed the Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program.

The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site is now accepting applications from teachers interested in a fun and challenging professional development opportunity as a Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) at the historic site in the summer of 2013. The TRT program is a national program that links National Park Service sites to classrooms by bringing teachers into the parks to work during the summer. The program enables teachers to bring their classroom expertise to park programs. In return, teachers return to the classroom with a new set of experiences and appreciation for local resources to share with their students.

The historic site is recruiting one (1) middle school level (6-8) grade teacher to:

  • Develop lesson plans in accord with the State of Alabama curriculum standards with resource materials connecting middle school audiences to the parks main stories.
  • Work with park staff and other teachers to provide input on the park's future education program.
  • Evaluate and make recommendations for improving existing children's programming.
  • Develop the framework for a teacher workshop focused on helping middle school students bring the park in to their classrooms.

TRT at a Glance

  • The TRT will receive a $3,000 lump sum stipend upon completion of 160 hours of work.
  • A Teacher-Ranger-Teacher shirt and hat will be provided.
  • Opportunity to earn graduate education credit through the University of Colorado Denver. Additional requirements apply.
  • Teacher works 160 hours for 4-8 weeks between June and August, 2013.
  • Flexible work hours available.

The deadline for applications is May 31, 2013. Apply today.
