Teaching Pioneers is the Patriot chapter of Educators Rising, a federally-recognized Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) in conjunction with Adopt a Teacher. As the co-curricular component of state-recognized Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs of study, Teaching Pioneers enhances the classroom experience for students enrolled in Education and Training career cluster programs. Teaching Pioneers is significantly contributing to the development of the next generation of great educators.

As a club, student volunteers partner with teachers at Bristow Run and T. Clay Wood once a week to both experience teaching and earn volunteer hours. We also hold monthly meetings at Patriot and run service events in partnership with other clubs and elementary schools.

To stay updated about club activities, meetings, and information, please follow us on Twitter @TeachingPioneer or text @tp19-20 to 81010.

Thank you for supporting future educators!
