Are you a teacher? Would you like to spend your summer teaching outside in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park? If so, check out the National Park Service Teacher-Ranger-Teacher Deadline to apply for this summer's program is April 1, 2014.
Participating teachers will have the opportunity to earn 3 graduate credits through the University of Colorado at Denver. Tuition for the 3 credits will be paid for by the National Park Service. Teachers can then choose to register and pay for 6 additional credits during the school year.
See what a former TRT had to say about her experience:
"I have always loved teaching children about nature but at CVNP I went out of my comfort zone on so many levels. To have a child take your hand as we hiked, to show them the flat rocks to cross a stream, and to revel in their sense of discovery as they hold a tadpole or salamander for the first time was extremely rewarding. Working with city children was even more rewarding. To help a child overcome their fear of the forest is like planting seeds for future exploration and confidence for them"
