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 May 4, 2014.

1. Don’t think outside the box. Think like there is no box. (By @Cyrsrommuel)

2. Finish the school year race by running through the finish line. You ran a good race, now finish strong. (By @TinneyTroy)

3. Learning from Dr. Andrea Ogonosky; she references the value of the Fundamental Five and @LYSNation to improve Tier I instruction. (By @bjaco)

4. Negativity among teachers results in lowered student achievement and increased discipline issues. (By @CabidaCain)

5. The concept of “buy-in” is the hallmark of ineffective leadership. The issue is “Do or don’t do,” and how leadership supports and responds to those actions. (By @LYSNation)

6. Recognizing / Reinforcing is about what the student DOES, not about whether or not we LIKE them.  (By @CabidaCain)

7. If instruction stops after the high stakes test, it’s hard for anyone to believe your argument that teaching is more than a test score. (By @BluntEducator)

8. Winning means you’re willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else. (By @CoachKWisdom)

9. Lots and lots of bond issues passed across Texas tonight. People support their local school districts. (By @johnkuhntx)

10. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just surpassed 56,000 copies sold! Thank you, LYS Nation!! (By @LYSNation)
