If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of November 8, 2015 when they were first posted.  And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.

1. Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. (By @CoachKWisdom)

2. Don’t major in minor things. (By @blitzkrieg607)

3. School is the new “family” for many of our students; it’s where they learn to say thank you, excuse me, and more. We must meet their needs! (By @stephengpeters)

4. “Adversity causes some teachers to break – and others to break records.” (By @DrRichAllen)

5. Our Lt. Gov’s (Dan Patrick) reference to our public schools as “dropout factories” offends us. With all due respect, we ask him to name those schools. (By @pastors4txkids)

6. Conservatives often use the dismissive phrase “just throwing money at” problems like poverty. Yet it sort of works. (By @alfiekohn)

7. One of the weirdest corruptions of our education policy in America is how classroom teachers are ignored in the formulation of it. (By @pastors4txkids)

8. Friday reflection: What did you DO this week, not talk about, not e-mail, to make your campus better next week? (By @CabidaCain)

9. Students have BS detectors for fake relevance.  It has to be THEIR relevance that learning is connected to. (By @tedfujimoto)

10. What’s awesome about 79,000? That’s how many copies of The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) that have now been sold! Thanks, LYS Nation!! (By @LYSNation)
