TRT Project in Full Swing

Morristown NHP would like to welcome our 2015 Teacher-Ranger-Teacher (TRT), Chris Bickel.

The TRT program is a Park Service professional development project, coordinated through the University of Colorado, Denver. Each year, eligible parks may apply to participate in this national initiative. We are very excited to be working with Livingston's own, Chris Bickel.

Focusing on K-12 education, Bickel works as Livingston Public Schools Social Studies Supervisor. We have had the pleasure of collaborating with Chris in years past and are eager to learn a lot from this partnership.

The 2015 TRT project is outward looking. We hope to reach Park Centennial and community collaboration goals by partnering with the Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum. For Bickel's part, he will to lead several teacher prototyping workshops and develop toolkit materials for both sites. Chris is also completing an extensive online course at UCD and samples of his work will be made available via the NPS TRT portal. He is working hard to help Livingston teachers #findTHEIRpark!

Thanks, Chris!

Stay tuned for more TRT updates this summer.
