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 April 20, 2014.

1. “In education, goals are only reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we fervently believe, and upon which we vigorously act.” (By @DrRichAllen)

2. If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room. (By @harvinmoore)

3. What is expected of today’s teachers far exceeds what was expected of yesterday’s teachers. (By @LYSNation)

4. Commit to celebrating all successes – big or small. What is small to you might be the biggest accomplishment to someone else. (By @Joe_Mazza)

5. Reminder to teachers: Always give students a genuine smile and “hello” in the hallway. Save your fake smile for the principal. (By @BluntEducator)

6. Curriculum based assessment data are great for guiding instruction, but the data should also alter the very structure of your campus. (By @txschoolsupe)

7. Insecure people need and create drama to feel important. (By @Leadershipfreak)

8. STAAR scores flat 3 years in a row. Testing experts say its unusual. TEA not certain why. Maybe STAAR isn’t developmentally appropriate? HINT! (By @txschoolsupe)

9. A few small acts of kindness here and there can change the world. (By @THS_Mr_Metz)

10. Yesterday’s teachers were questioned by no one. Today’s teachers are subject to questions from anyone. (By @LYSNation)
