Teacher Ranger Teacher

Are you a teacher who would like to spend a summer living and working in a national park? This is the program for you. Work at Point Reyes for the summer, then bring the stories and lessons of Point Reyes back to your students.

About the Teacher Ranger Teacher Program
The Teacher Ranger Teacher 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 participants spend between four and six weeks in a NPS unit developing a major educational project and participating in an online graduate course from CU Denver. The goal of the program is to train teachers in the resources and themes of the NPS so that they can return to their schools in the fall and incorporate their new skills into their classroom activities. NPS aims to especially reach students from underserved schools and districts by recruiting teachers from Title 1, urban or rural schools and from tribal schools to participate in the Teacher Ranger Teacher program.
