A number of you in the LYS Nation are now Twitter users.  If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us.  To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of May 19, 2013.

1. Congratulations to LYS Coach, Harry Miller! The newest member of the Texas Basketball Hall Of Fame. Well deserved!

2. Congratulations to LYSer, Fletcher Turcato! He is the new Superintendent for Carbon County School District. Who will be next?

3. Congratulations to LYSer, Christopher Taylor! He is the new Assistant Superintendent for Quinlan ISD. Who will be next?

4. Classroom management tip:  Want better behaved students in May?  Try taking the countdown of school days until summer break off your board. (By @principalkinney)

5. Today we learned that Texas State Senator, Dan Patrick, believes in money for Pearson more than he believes in the sound instructional practices for Texas children. (By @BennySoileau)

6. The Tea Party fanatics need to read the TEKS before speaking. Better yet, hand them the TEKS and say, “Teach!” (By @darbie490)

7. Professors rarely ask their students to write—because “their writing skills are poor.” Self-perpetuating cycle, anyone? (By @anniemurphypaul)

8. Today’s Quote:  “Sadly, in education, when the going gets tough, the tough get traditional.” (By @DrRichAllen)

9. My guess is at least 40% of the 9th and 10th graders failed writing and are now ineligible to graduate. Have we ever had a test do that? (By @txschoolsupe)

10. Schools are so much more than a bunch of tests. Do not let STAAR define what your school is all about. (By @cheadhorn)
