Opportunity Available for Local Teachers at American Memorial Park
American Memorial Park and partner Pacific Historic Parks is now accepting applications for a Teacher Ranger Teacher opportunity. The Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) program is a professional development opportunity for K-12 teachers to spend the summer acquiring new skills in experiential learning through a program provided by a partnership between the National Park Service (NPS) and the University of Colorado Denver (CUD).
The TRT program supplies one teacher with the opportunity to receive a small stipend of $3,584, graduate school credit from the University of Colorado Denver, and experience working with the National Park Service. The teacher will receive hands-on experience in the summer working side by side with park interpreters, patrol rangers, and other specialists. At the conclusion of the program the teacher will have developed a lesson plan they can use with their students and the park can share with the community.
The position will start on Monday, June 6, 2016 (negotiable). The teacher will be employed for 240 hours spread across online coursework, the development of a lesson plan, and experiencing NPS operations. Applications are due by close of business on Monday, May 2, 2016.
Applications are available for pickup Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 4:30 pm, at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center (Garapan) or you can request an application from Pacific Historic Parks Education Specialist Nicole Schafer at 670-234-720, extension 2007 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
