Haleakala National Park is seeking a K-12 Hawaiian immersion teacher to participate in the “Teacher-Ranger-Teacher-Program” this summer.

The selected teacher will spend between four to six weeks at the park developing a field trip lesson in the Hawaiian language and participating in an online graduate course from the University of Colorado Denver.

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. The participant can expect to begin work at the park sometime in June.

For more information or to obtain an application, email nps_hale_eec@nps.gov.

The 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.
