PC: Haleakalā National Park

Haleakalā National Park is seeking a K-12 Hawaiian Immersion teacher to participate in the Teacher-Ranger-Teacher Program during the summer of 2022. The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher will spend 4-6 weeks at the park developing a field trip lesson in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Language) and participating in an online graduate course from the University of Colorado Denver.   

The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program is a partnership between the National Park Service and the University of Colorado Denver and is designed to link National Parks and teachers from schools with underserved student populations. 

Haleakalā National Park’s summer program will provide experiences for a teacher to bring back to his or her classroom in the form of a field trip lesson plan for Hawaiian Immersion schools and other education or youth groups visiting the park.  

Upon project completion, the teacher will receive a $3,000 stipend and three graduate course credits from the University of Colorado Denver. The professional development program will equate to approximately 240 hours of field trip lesson development and online coursework. Applications must be received by May 28, 2022. 

The new Teacher-Ranger-Teacher can expect to begin work at the park sometime in June. For more information and an application, email [email protected]
