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 November 17, 2013.

1. Simply put, in education, results are what matter!  And, they must be acquired honorably and endure over time! (By @tgrierhisd)

2. Standards do not lead to teaching to the test or packet instruction. Poor teaching does that. (By @stumpteacher)

3. Students watch good teachers sweat. Great teachers help students sweat. (By @LYSNation)

4. The goal has always been to focus on the things we can control. Which are: how you play, how you perform and how you prepare. (By @CoachKWisdom)

5. Adult practice drives student performance. (By @LYSNation)

6. Our opponents are our allies if we use their resistance and challenge to make ourselves stronger and better. (By @Mark_Sanborn)

7. Identifying what to quit doing is as valuable as identifying what to do. (By @LYSNation)

8. Ms. Williams at BSJH just closed her lesson with a quick written summarization activity. Superstar practice!!! (By @LYSNation)

9. Just drove past the E. Don Brown Activity Center.  I’m personally thankful for this man and Texas should be too! (By @tra_hall)

10. We all should reflect on the things we are thankful for! (By @OneilCHSprincip)

Rest. Think. Be Thankful. Your turn…
