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. If you are not regularly talking to your people, you are not coaching. (By @CaitlinLoury)


  1. Before instructional coaching can begin, time must be made for relationships to form, and trust to be built. You won’t be successful walking into teachers’ classrooms and telling them what to do. (By @rbreyer51)


  1. “Real coaching happens eyeball to eyeball.” (By @CaitlinLoury)


  1. “We do not get credibility with our teachers because of our position. You get credibility by being visible to the people doing the work.” (By @CarsonCramer1)


  1. Only 5% of praise statements from teacher to student are behavior specific. Move from “good job, way to go, keep it up,” to specific statements that help children to know the expectation and repeat it again. (By @walker8208)


  1. “Vouchers are an easy, yet ineffective, ‘out’ for our legislators — relieving our state leaders of their responsibility to provide oversight and accountability for public schools as demanded by our state constitution.” (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. Some students don’t have a lot of hope… That’s where education comes in; that is the power of teachers. They offer hope. (By @SteeleThoughts)


  1. “Decades of research involving over forty thousand participants has shown that people who set difficult and specific goals outperform people who set vague and non-challenging goals.” (By @DrMetz_MHS)


  1. “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” -Vince Lombardi (By @DrMetz_MHS)


  1. “Is the U.S. public school system perfect? Of course not. Is it broken and failing as some would have you believe? Absolutely not.” (By @pastors4OKkids)


Think. Work. Achieve.
