1. I fear not the coach who has practiced 1000 plays one time, but the coach who has practiced the one play 1000 times. Good teams do one thing really well. Have an identity. Don’t practice until you get something right, practice it until you can’t get it wrong. (By @bristowfootball)

2. You find purpose in frustration, discomfort, sadness, disappointment, and pain. You won’t find your purpose at an amusement park. (By @Leadershipfreak)

3. The power of conversation is it breaks through our brains, making ideas bounce and come alive…real. (@writeguyjeff)

4. Critical writing is written proof of authentic THINKING! (By @traci_tousant)

5. Closing public schools is an admission of failure by those in charge of the system. No gold stars for those who close public schools and replace them with charters. (By @DianeRavitch)

6. On the week a test is administered, in most classrooms, up to 60% of instructional time is lost for testing related activities. (By @LYSNation)

7. You were not born a winner and you were not born a loser. You are what you make yourself to be. (By @CoachKWisdom)

8. Raising insurance cost for public-school teachers is just another way to drive them away, promote vouchers, and demean public education. (By @jenjln)

9. We should support and revere the teaching profession. The power to shape and mold our future as a state and nation are in the hands of our educators daily. (By @pastors4OKkids)

10. “Educational malpractice is not happening in the school house, it’s happening in the State House.” -John Kuhn (By @DeborahCano1)
