National parks enrich the lives of many in this nation. They provide access to the powerful ideas, values, and meanings associated with the remarkable cultural, natural, and recreational heritage of the United States. The National Park Service (NPS) strives to provide opportunities for all Americans to connect to their national heritage through the national parks. However, these opportunities are lacking for some children.
The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program provides a solution: connecting students to their national parks through a teacher in their school.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore is looking for a local teacher interested in fostering a strong connection between local schools and their National Park. Working as a Teacher-Ranger at Cape Hatteras National Seashore during the upcoming summer season will allow the teacher to bring their expertise to the park and take a deeper knowledge of the park back to their classroom.
