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 September 15, 2013.

1. Do you believe in servant leadership? If so who do you serve? If a servant can only serve one master, you must choose. I choose students. You? (By @txschoolsupe)

2. Leadership is less about theory and rhetoric than it is about guts and follow-through. (By @tlonganecker)

3. “Instructional” leadership, “transactional” leadership, “transformational” leadership… Seriously, just be a LEADER! (By @tlonganecker) 

4. E. Don Brown postulate 1: the principal is the only person in the system positioned to be the student advocate. (By @txschoolsupe)

5. There is an unequivocal link between campus success and leadership. (By @LYSNation)

6. We need an agile instruction force, trained to respond in an increasingly fluid environment. This requires more resources and skills, not less. (By @LYSNation)

7. I will admit it! I promote critical thinking in the classroom. I believe that it is important in the preservation of a democratic society. (By @LittelMath)

8. Preach the Fundamental 5. Example… Mrs. Rivas framed her open house presentation and gave parents an exit ticket! (By @brandyjbaker)

9. If your primary decision making filter is “avoid uncomfortable conversations,” the you are miscast for campus leadership roles. (By @LYSNation)

10. A little reflection goes a long way. (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve.
