I’ve spent the last few months caught up in the phrase, “You Do You”. The meaning behind those words is a powerful one. It is one that emcompasses individuality, risk taking, being bold and adventurous, and sometimes stepping outside one’s comfort zone. “You do You” is not a new phrase. It’s been around the block a few times. But for me it has newfound meaning, so I’m adding to this phrase…”You Do You EDU“:
As an Educator, too many times we try to fit into a traditional role. One that is expected of us, or comfortable, or status quo. When I think about what might be BEST for our students, I think “You Do You EDU”. Stepping outside our comfort zone, choosing different, meeting the needs of all students. We all can’t be doing the same thing at all times…so I say:
Educators: You Do You EDU!
