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 28, 2014.

1. The magic of instruction is in the delivery!!! (By @jphillips4boys)

2. Schools districts need to be discussing the differences between rigor and difficulty. Doing 100 math problems doesn’t equal rigor. (By @justintarte)

3. Really cool doing classroom visits (PowerWalks) today and seeing so many future educators from the University of Louisville in our building learning from our teachers!! (By @PrincipalFHS)

4. When observing instruction: Learn to distinguish between a random occurrence and a purposeful practice. (By @suziesnow)

5. Sometimes ineffective people are very good at interviewing because they get to do it every year. (By @stevegruenert)

6. We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret and disappointment. (By @CoachKWisdom)

7. Which TEPSA Assistant Principal has done 238 PowerWalks this month? @Loriebratcher Wow!! @rachealrife is one lucky principal. What’s your PowerWalks #? (By Khund)

8. If teachers just smiled most of the time, discipline problems would be cut in half and student achievement would improve!  (By @AnnetteBreaux)

9. Shorter Dan Patrick: Yeah, I got rid of 11,000 teachers, but they were OLD. (By @akmcquade)

10. All German universities will be free as of next week because tuition fees are “socially unjust.” (By @DavidNelsonNews)
