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 August 11, 2013.

1. If after 1st grade we can identify that a student is at extreme risk to become a dropout, and then we let that happen… Shame on us. (By @LYSNation)

2. Never argue with a crazy person. They’ll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. (By @RatliffT)

3. The whole point to knowing the future is to make it better, not to sit back and watch it happen. Actually use your data. (By @LYSNation)

4. Hutto HS is taking Lesa Cain’s advice. We will work hard, make mistakes, and make changes. What will you do? (By @brandyjbaker)

5. Policies banning cell phones at schools are outdated. We can teach kids to use them responsibly and need to use current ways to reach kids. (By @Snowmanlearning)

6. Did you hear about the Teacher who won the lottery? When asked what she would do she said, “Teach & teach until I go broke.” (By @LYSNation)

7. Llano ISD teachers still can use CSCOPE lesson plans after court ruling – Details on http://www.texasisd.com/ (By @texasisd)

8. In the CSCOPE battle, the ideology that we need to fear is the ideology of the Anti-CSCOPE loonies. (By @LYSNation)

9. I’m a concerned parent. Concerned that a few rabble-rousers are making teaching and learning tough for our teachers and students. (By @TheTexasHoss)

10. It never gets old reporting this; the number 1 best selling education book on Kindle, today… The Fundamental 5! Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve.
