— One local teacher will be recruited to spend the summer working at Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, announced Superintendent John J. Donahue.

“As a Teacher-Ranger-Teacher, you will learn about the park’s rich natural and cultural resources, help develop the park’s education program, present programs for park visitors, and have the opportunity to share your experiences with your students and fellow teachers when you return to the classroom," he said.

This temporary, 230-hour position is part of a nationwide professional development program to help grow and nurture K-12 educational opportunities within the National Park Service (NPS). The selected teacher will work alongside park staff to evaluate the park’s educational programming and develop new curriculum and teacher resources. Applicants should have experience in program planning and lesson plan development and a passion for placed-based education and national parks. Teachers of all grade levels and subject areas from the park’s surrounding school districts may apply.

The TRT program includes 45 hours of online coursework, discussion, and course readings. Upon completion of the program and course work, the teacher will receive a $3,000 stipend and earn three graduate credit hours through University of Colorado 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.

For more information or an application, email the park's Education and Outreach Specialist Rainey McKenna at rainey_mckenna@nps.gov.
