Local Teachers Sought for its Summer 2015 Teacher-Ranger-Teacher Program
Montezuma Castle/Tuzigoot National Monument is pleased to announce an opportunity for two local teachers to infuse their teaching skills with NPS-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education resources.
The teacher-ranger-teachers will get a firsthand look at the natural and cultural resources that make these locations unique, while they spend seven weeks at our monuments.They will be asked to develop at least one lesson plan and share what they learned in their classroom and
with their colleagues.
The selected teachers will receive a $3000 living expense stipend and earn three graduate credit hours from University of Colorado, Denver, upon the successful completion of the program.
The session is scheduled to start June 8. The work week is Monday –Thursday, with Friday fieldtrips. For more information about the program and an application, please contact Mary Ontiveros or by phone at 928-567-5276 x228. Additional information is also available on our website.
