1. The time is always right to do what is right. (By @CoachKWisdom)

2. “Upper levels of cognition have almost nothing to do with us [teachers] and almost everything to do with them [students.]” (By @SISDSocStu_CI)

3. People always move towards someone who increases them and away from anyone who decreases them. (By @blitzkrieg607)

4. If you don’t expect yourself to accomplish great things then it’s likely you won’t. (By @LeadToday)

5. If you won’t make enemies with adults because you’re fighting for kids to have access to a great education, you have no real fight in you. Go away. (By @DrStevePerry)

6. Love kids first. Hassling over a pencil is not worth destroying relationships. Just give them one. (By @alicekeeler)

7. Teacher practice is the leading indicator, student performance is the lagging indicator.  Improve teacher craft, increase student success. (By @DrMetz_MJH)

8. Beginning to realize a profound vision can’t be communicated. It must be modeled and walked before it can be learned. (By @txschoolsiupe)

9. Today we are awash in pessimism. But history suggests that it’s the optimists who have tended to be right. (By @FareedZakaria)

10. If you ever reach a point where you don’t think it’s awesome that you get to go to school and teach kids, call a sub immediately. For real. (By @BluntEducator)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
