  1. Ms. Shipper taught math to goofy middle school kids and got them to love it. So much so, that at least two of them followed in her footsteps, became math teachers and taught the greatest subject of all to a couple thousand more goofy teenagers. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Want to learn what works in classrooms? Observe great teachers… a lot! (By @LYSNation)


  1. “An important step toward curbing the privatization of education will be helping the public understand the difference between the ideological appeal of freedom of choice and the damage wrought through the theft of public school funding…” (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. We continue to oppose voucher programs that divert public school funds to private organizations that lack financial transparency and accountability. (By @CFISDCLC)


  1. When you make school decisions that place students behind anything else… You might occupy a school leadership position, but you are not a school leader. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Confidence isn’t the absence of anxiety. Confidence is the ability to step into anxiety and see what good might result. Purpose provides a reason to step into anxiety. What’s the point of stepping into anxiety if there’s no purpose for your leadership? (By @Leadershipfreak)


  1. You do a thing because it’s best for the students. Then you move to the next thing. That is school leadership. (By @LYSNation)


  1. “The No. 1 trait that all great leaders need to have is the ability to have uncomfortable conversations.” -Institute of Success CEO, Bryce Welker (By @tgrierhisd)


  1. Let go of the past. It can’t be changed. Be mindful of the present and find joy in every minute. (By @clwilkens)


  1. We are Pastors For Mississippi Kids, a non-partisan group of Mississippi clergy who believe that fully funding our public schools and paying our teachers what they deserve is a moral responsibility. “Supporting our public schools is a moral issue, not a political one.” (By @pastors4mskids)
