1. Leadership is about holding yourself accountable. You can’t tell someone to do something you aren’t willing to do. (By @justintarte)

2. Leadership is not dependent on your title, but on your ability to inspire people to follow you. (By @tgrierhisd)

3. Learning to say “No” is the most effective way to get out of and pay off debt. (By @clwilkens)

4. As a leader, it’s your job to protect your team so they can do the work they’re meant to do. (By @tgrierhisd)

5. If you know you are under-serving your most academically fragile students, then the same is true for academically more able students. (By @LYSNation)

6. Teachers should moderate all (political) debates. No one’s better at keeping loud, disruptive and immature children on task than a teacher. (By @NicholasFerroni)

7. If you are enjoying your lesson, the students probably are too. Same goes if you are bored. (By @BluntEducator)

8. There’s tough. And then there is outside recess when it is 19 degrees. Well played, Wyoming. Well played. (By @LYSNation)

9. Clarke Middle School faculty are geared and motivated to be a part of the “2% Best Lesson Closers” in 2016! Go Cowboys!! (By @WClarke_MS)

10. Great read to start a new semester. The Fundamental 5 by Cain & Laird. (By @DCS_Sec_CTE)
