GTIP 2008 Interns

Allisa Pack, Glasgow, KY
Debbie Sherfey, Temple Hill Elementary School, Glasgow, KY

This year we received from each teacher intern a final report and evaluation of the program as well as three trail guides to be used for self-study by classroom teachers, homeschool groups and other interested visitors. The final reports included five to ten digital photographs. Additional images will be provided as their students use the park's resources. Each teacher has scheduled and will present two public programs / presentations that will help community members understand the park, park resources, and types of geoscience jobs/careers available. Each of our 2008 intern teachers has also submitted photographs of their work in the park as well as with their students. They have agreed to supply additional photographs as the school year progresses.

In addition, the 2008 intern teachers will work with future Intern teachers as well as those teachers who completed the program in 2006 and 2007 to expand the growing teacher network that will educate local and regional peers, students, and parents on park resources and types of geoscience jobs/careers available, among other topics.
