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 December 21, 2014.

1. If zero tolerance discipline policies worked, then no student would ever be in trouble, ever… (By @justintarte)

2. Saying that teachers only work 7.5 hrs/day for 9 months/yr is like saying that NFL players only work for 3.5 hours on Sundays. = DUMB (By @schink10)

3. Sometimes burning bridges is good. It keeps us from going back to places we never should have visited to begin with. (By @RobertShipley2)

4. Success isn’t always about “greatness,” it’s about consistency. Consistent hard work gains success. Greatness will come. (By @TheRock)

5. Don’t confuse activity with productivity. Working hard at the wrong things doesn’t work. (By @1pitchwarrior)

6. Lots of info out there about reducing suspensions. It doesn’t happen if you don’t change how people think about discipline! (By @herbertoneiljr)

7. Learning never stops! California district adds Wi-Fi to buses, parks them near students’ homes. (By @OfficialDLDay) 

8. One thing I do know is that being a principal is a hard job. In my opinion it is the hardest! (By @herbertoneiljr)

9. Falling oil prices and home values in Texas are a perfect storm to hurt public education funding once again. (By @DrJerryRBurkett)

10. Imagine a world in which we are all enlightened by objective truths rather than offended by them. (By @neiltyson)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
