    Being a  Pioneer means is tolling a difficult road.  As a historian I can say that many Pioneers were rough and rugged people willing to sacrifice for the extraordinary discovery of something new.  Many of these Pioneers paid the ultimate sacrifice.  All knew the risks associated with the new endeavor.  However, in each of them was a sense of risk, a sense of excitement and exploration.  Because of these people our society today has benefited greatly.

    Who will be the next Pioneers?  What will be the next undiscovered frontier?  Who among us possess the sense of risk, the sense of excitement and exploration?  Who among us will sacrifice to be the first to use or apply some form of educational intervention that will pay dividends for our current students and our future students?

    This blog is dedicated to Pioneers!  People willing to do all the above.  Stay tuned for future pioneering educational ideas!

    Good luck and may your Pioneering be prosperous!
