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 June 9, 2013.

1. Cut funding, increase testing standards, cut instructional days, increase class size… Scores don’t go up. Then blame kids and teachers? Really? (By @LYSNation)

2. Trimester: It’s better for the fragile student, advanced student, CATE student, fine arts student and athlete. So when is your campus switching? (By @LYSNation)

3. Amazing! No matter how many times I’ve attended a Lead Your School workshop I walk away with something that can enhance my school. (By @principalschu)

4. From the mouth of a LYSer: We found that when teachers teach the right thing and kids have time to do the work, scores go up. (By @LYSNation)

5. “If we are not coaching our people, no one else is.” I intend to coach! (By @jbsteadham)

6. We must control the spin on our own schools, systems and profession! Too many people weigh-in on us as if they know our work! (By @Principal_EL)

7. The more tied you are to a specific district or geographic location, the more you inject time and luck into your career advancement equation. (By @LYSNation)

8. Whiners whine because it works…it stops when it doesn’t work. (By @Bstamm00)

9. Since the Texas has decided that biology is more important than chemistry, does that mean it is now OK to teach evolution and contraception? (By @LYSNation)

10. How will we know if students are truly enjoying their summer if we don’t assess them on it? (By @sjunkins)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
