Essex Heritage and the National Park Service offer a professional development program that supports K-12 educators in creating projects with their students that utilize their communities’ natural, cultural, and historic resources. Based on the training that they receive through the Park for Every Classroom program, teachers work with their students and local partners to create academically rigorous projects that serve their communities.
