  1. There is nothing like knowing you had a hand in keeping ONE student from dropping out of school! Education is a blessed profession! (By @tgrierhisd)


  1. Good employees don’t stay in a place where no one values them. (By @tgrierhisd)


  1. “Our public schools are not “charity.” Their budgets are not “munificence,” subject to the whims of corporate benefactors, but rather the hard-won legacy of public funding for all, by all.” (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. If you cheat yourself in practice, you’ll cheat yourself in a game; and if you cheat in a game, you’ll cheat yourself for the rest of your life. -Vince Lombardi (By @CoachMotto)


  1. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle (By @leadershipfreak)


  1. People follow a great leader not because they have to, but because they want to. (By @tgrierhisd)


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


  1. “Take ownership of your failures, question, learn and acknowledge them, and use them to become better at what you do.” -Tom Peters (By @effectleader)


  1. A BIG question for leaders. Are you creating a culture where ALL team members are seeking and presenting ideas to solve organizational problems? Or, is your team solely dependent on YOU? (By @tgrierhisd)


  1. Culture is a competitive advantage. A team with a great culture seems to have an extra layer of strength, tradition, resilience, belief and power that is hard to defeat. (By @JonGordon11)
