2. Congratulations to LYSer, Crystal Mueller! She is the new principal at Tomball Intermediate School. Who will be next? (By @LYSNation)

3. Another rule of thumb… Instructional Rigor does not always mean more “work.” It’s quality, not quantity! (By @scot_wright)

4. Why do Teachers take points off for late work? When you turn your lesson plans in late to Principal, does she take $5 off your check? (By @alicekeeler)

5. Really enjoyed The Fundamental 5 (book). Plan on using them as our school wide standard for quality instruction. (By @ronre)

6. It always amazes me that we expect kids to be well behaved and desire learning when we adults can be disrespectful and hate change. (By @Snowmanlearning)

7. Three-step solution to improved classroom management. 1. Improve the overall quality of instruction. 2. Don’t be a jerk. 3. Don’t exact revenge. (By @LYSNation)

8. Stop trying to figure out how to punish students into compliance and spend your energy on figuring out how to engage them with purpose. (By @justintarte)

9. If we as educators aren’t in the business of providing hope for our students, then what’s the point of what we are doing…? (By @justintarte)

10. Make sure you say more on your marquee this summer than “Have a great summer”. Share positive facts about campus. (By @lsitzes)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
