The Teacher Corps Internship (also known as the national Teacher Ranger Teacher program) is an extended professional development opportunity for educators from K-12 schools to learn about the resources and educational materials available through the National Park Service. Teachers participating in the Teacher Corps Internship program will have the opportunity to engage in parks and park resources, participate in a webinar about lesson planning, develop at least one lesson to be used in their classroom or school, assist the park with an education project, and increase their understanding of place-based learning.
Administration of the program, professional development hours and graduate credit hours will be made available to participants through the University of Colorado, Denver, through a cooperative agreement. Several hours of online training are required.
Chamizal National Memorial is not currently offering an internship position, but look for other Teacher Corps Internship opportunities at other national parks.
