Teacher Ranger Teachers work with Park Rangers to develop an education program related to Weir Farm and earn graduate credits though the University of Colorado, plus a paid stipend as part of the National Park Service Teacher Ranger Teacher program. Applications for the Teacher Ranger Teacher at Weir Farm have closed for 2023. If you are interested in being added to the park's email mailing list and our teacher mailing list for future program updates and opportunites for educators, please email us and let us know: wefa_interpretation@nps.gov

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. The 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.
