If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS tweets from the past week 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. Leaders who stay optimistic, even under intense pressure, radiate the positive feelings that create excitement. By staying in control of their feelings and impulses, they create an environment of trust, comfort and fairness. That attitude has a trickle-down effect from the leader. (By @effectleader)


  1. Fundamental 5 training is a GAME CHANGER for campuses! (By @traci_tousant)


  1. When adopting a new instructional practice or tool, keep reminding your staff that expertise is not the expectation. Instead, all we initially require is effort. (By @LYSNation)


  1. When exposed to ideas that make us uncomfortable we often become defensive. It’s how we protect our own ideas. But this approach is debilitating. It limits our capacity to grow. It causes us to attack those taking risks. To truly innovate, we have to embrace the uncomfortable. (By @Kareemfarah23)


  1. Real system-wide improvement, improvement that makes a big impact, is a function of leadership. This is where leaders add value. (By @LYSNation)


  1. The instructional tempo of almost every classroom is the never ending, mind-numbing slog of 2-steps forward, 1-step back. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Principals Should Be the School Optimist-in-Chief. (By @JCPSAsstSuptES1)


  1. Don’t engage with the Hater. Just “nothing” them. They really, really hate that. (By @LYSNation)


  1. The body plays the game, but the mind determines the result. (By @SportsMotto)


  1. “This country has socialism for the rich, and rugged individualism for the poor.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, 1968 (By @RBReich)
