"This past summer I participated in an Environmental Education internship at the Teton Science
School (TSS) in Jackson Hole, WY. I spent 12 weeks at TSS and I was involved in all aspects of
their small community. My primary responsibility was team teaching the Teton Junior Science
School which is a weekly summer day camp for children entering grades 1-8. In addition to
teaching, I also had residential duties for girls participating in the middle and high school
residential programs offered by TSS. I also hosted and participated in adult ecology seminars.
Due to the nature of the community, I also had kitchen and other cleaning duties. I thoroughly
enjoyed my experience at TSS and I think it was very beneficial for me to be involved in so many
aspects of the operation of this non-proft organization. I completed my internship feeling
very confident in my abilities as a field instructor in environmental education."
