The National Park Service (NPS) offers professional development opportunities for certified teachers across the country through the Teacher Corps Internship (TCI). Administration of the program, professional development hours and graduate credit hours are available to participants through the University of Colorado, Denver. Teachers will learn about park resources, participate in a variety of ranger duties, and develop at least one lesson related to the park to be used at school. Chamizal National Memorial interns will assist with the Trailblazer Find Your Park program, which gives local children the opportunity to visit public lands including city, state, and national parks of the area. The internship lasts from 6-8 weeks and provides a stipend of $2400. Housing is not included.
