American Memorial Park Welcomes Teacher Ranger Teacher
 
GARAPAN, Saipan – For the second year in a row, American Memorial Park was one of 34 parks from across the National Park Service (NPS) to be selected to participate in the Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) Program. The purpose of the program is to provide teachers an opportunity to learn about NPS educational resources and themes while earning continuing education graduate credits through a partnership between the NPS and the University of Colorado-Denver. 
 
American Memorial Park is happy to welcome Riya Nathrani as this summer’s Teacher Ranger Teacher. Ms. Nathrani is a third grade teacher at the William S. Reyes Elementary School. When asked about the opportunity, she said, “I look forward to attaining knowledge and skills to enhance my curriculum and to help ignite a life-long personal connection with national parks in my students.”
 
Over the summer, Ms. Nathrani will spend several weeks in an immersive, on-site experience at American Memorial Park developing and implementing a community program as well as completing three graduate credit hours of coursework in Experiential Learning online. She will also receive a stipend from the University.
 
For more information about these events or other programs at the park, please contact Ranger Brooke Nevitt at 234-7207 x 2020 or via email at brooke_nevitt@nps.gov.
 
American Memorial Park was established in 1978 to honor the American and Marianas people who gave their lives during the Battle for the Marianas during WWII.
