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 July 12, 2015.

1. If somebody doesn’t disagree with you about something, then you aren’t focusing on work that matters to others. Don’t fear disagreement. (By @justintarte)

2. No church would formulate a budget without the pastor’s approval. But we routinely form state education budgets without educators’ approval. (By @pastors4txkids)

3. Reflecting on trainings from past two weeks. A statement that stands out, “the person doing the talking is doing the learning.” (By @jonCampbell47)

4. A student has to receive thirteen 100’s before recovering from one single 0. Zeroes are DEVASTATING to kids. (By @justintarte)

5. The notion that we can make adequate and equitable education policy that is not designed and endorsed by educators closest to our kids is nuts. (By @pastors4txkids)

6. “In the new economy, information, education, and motivation are everything.” (By @DrRichAllen)

7. If you are a public servant and you object to fulfilling your public obligation, the solution is simple. Quit and go work in the private sector. (By @LYSNation)

8. School administrators should always be in the classrooms walking the walk with teachers everyday. (By @DanFowler05)

9. Leadership has a multiplying effect. (By @SteveGutzler)

10. Your legacy depends not on what you accomplish in your current role, but on what continues to happen after you leave. (By @eduleadership)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
