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 January 11, 2015.

1. “Leadership in education doesn’t start with how to improve others, it starts with how you improve yourself.  Model what you seek.” (By @DrRichAllen)

2. How can a teacher know if students are learning if he/she is the one doing all the talking? (By @DavidGeurin)

3. The more I observe Kindergarten classrooms; the more I am fascinated by Kindergarten classrooms. (By @LYSNation)

4. The Texas Legislature should focus on making up the difference in public school funding and less on vouchers. (By @RYHTexas)

5. The difference between “reply” and “reply all” can be the difference between “employed” and “in a transition phase.” (By @BluntEducator)

6. Define what training you want for each job type in your school and then set up a process to ensure it happens. (By @TroyMooney)

7. The price of greatness is responsibility.  Own your mistakes and grow from the knowledge it provides you. (By @blitzkrieg607)

8. Racism. Classism. It still exists. In low expectation. In refusal to support schools now that they “don’t have any kids in the system.” (By @Snowmanlearning)

9. Day by day, week by week, month by month I am working to provide the leadership I want to see in others.  Be the change you wish to see. (By @blitzkrieg607)

10. Don’t treat kids without a pen/pencil like outcasts from society. Give them something to write with for cryin’ out loud. (By @BluntEducator)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
