  1. If you find that you are following a habitual liar, abandon that person as soon as possible. Before your dignity is crushed, effort is stolen, and reputation ruined. (By @LYSNation)

 

  1. A veteran, wise and moral leader manages her words and statements carefully. (By @LYSNation)

 

  1. Distance yourself from people who: 1 Speak poorly about others. 2 Have problems for every solution. 3 Enjoy complaining. 4 Always feel entitled. 5 Blame others for losing. 6 Take more than give. 7 Make you feel bad about yourself. 8 Cheat or lie. 9 Bully or troll. 10 Nitpick as a hobby. (By @ValaAfshar)

 

  1. “When schooling comes to be viewed mainly as a source of private benefit, both schools and society suffer grave consequences.” (By @pastors4OKkids)

 

  1. If you want student achievement to increase, take steps to ensure teachers spend more time teaching and engaging students in meaningful work—i.e. eliminate classroom interruptions (announcements), worksheets, meaningless testing, etc. And, keep principals in their buildings! (By @tgrierhisd)

 

  1. I was a good teacher, in my era (early 1990’s). But that same teacher, doing the same thing in today’s classroom… Not so good. Which is why I remind every teacher and administrator I work with, “Don’t be me. Be better than me.” (By @LYSNation)

 

  1. “Laws require public schools to award contracts through a transparent process and prohibit public schools from entering contracts that pose conflicts of interest. Charters can award contracts to almost anyone they like…” (By @pastors4OKkids)

 

  1. We have to stop expecting new hires, teachers and administrators, to already be great. Sure some may be above par, but unrealistic expectations mean we often don’t provide proper support, encouragement, and mentoring that it takes to succeed. Greatness takes time to be cultivated and developed. (By @DrBradJohnson)

 

  1. I am tired of people telling me that if I really love being a teacher, that pay shouldn’t matter. Besides, my credit cards unfortunately don’t accept payments of ‘love for a job.’ (By @FixingEducation)

 

  1. Not surprised by analysts finding that teacher work more overtime than any other profession. And, they are not paid time and one-half. I suspect you could add principals and other educators to that category. (By @tgrierhisd)
