From what I recall, there were a couple of museum or education jobs. I suppose it might be the same as what you're doing now, but it looked like they were actually through the Park Service.

It just seemed to us like a much better direction for you than the private schools you were looking at.

Some of those private schools I was applying to were really quite cool. I still think I'd like to get into one of those. Sadly, however, the only one that ahs expressed interest in ME was the one that required teachers to work 6 days a week, from 7am to 5pm in the classroom, and with an extra month of schooling over the summer, for those same hours and days. Uh. No. I'm not that dedicated to ANY work. (besides, if you're in the classroom 9-10 hours per day, six days per week, when do you grade papers and all the other out of classroom work teachers have to do??)

I checked the nps site, just out of curiosity. Insane numbers of those jobs are only available for people already in the system or meeting some other form of eligibility. heck, if army boy ever wants to leave the army and do national park protection, he's "eligible" for some of those jobs just because of the military thing. Me...I can't even figure out what the eligibility requirements are, but know I don't meet most of 'em. NPS is famously tough to get into...the salaries are better than i would have guessed tho...who knew?
