Starting in summer of 2012, a Teacher in Residence (TIR) Fellow will join the unique Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES) research and education community for a year of research, educational leadership and professional growth. The TIR Fellow will be an integral part of the Pathways to Environmental Science Literacy (ESL) Project funded by the National Science Foundation and taking place at BES and three other Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) sites around the nation. The TIR Fellow will acquire strong skills and a deeper understanding of cutting edge ecology and education research, contribute to the development of environmental science literacy frameworks and teaching resources for teachers and students in grades 6-12, and provide leadership and support to other teachers in the project.
