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 7, 2014.

1. Reading out loud, one student at a time, is about as good as having a track team share a treadmill for practice. One works, twenty-eight watch? YUCK! (By @DrMattParker)

2. Punishing irresponsibility doesn’t teach a student how to be responsible. (By @BrettHancock)

3. Implementation relies on clear expectations. Expectations need to be inspected. Inspection requires a commitment. (By @vhsaldana)

4. I’ve found there is no “magic formula” for success. Stay humble, hungry and outwork everyone (or try to at least). (By @TheRock)

5. We need to keep three items in place: Making the most of our learning environment; Purposeful targeted instruction: Follow through with support. (By @genevie79cr)

6. Today’s Quote:  “A library is a place where we learn what teachers were afraid to teach us.” (By @DrRichAllen)

7. What we learn today doesn’t make yesterday wrong. It makes tomorrow better. (By @Jeff_Zoul)

8. How often do students suffer through, “Guess what’s on the teacher’s mind?” It’s disingenuous and dishonest. (By @willkimbley)

9. To the high school players frustrated with their playing time, Marcus Mariota didn’t start a game until his Senior year. Let that sink in. (By @coachjjohnson1)

10. Excited to share that The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) has now sold over 69,000 copies! Thank you, LYS Nation!! (By @LYSNation)
