"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life" Mary Oliver. Joan Flaherty, the author of Rest and An Approach to Rejuvenating our Teaching and Ourselves, talks about how we can combat emotional fatigue. Teacher, you have one wild and precious life. Our students do too. 

We need to use it well. In today's show on emotional fatigue, Joan discusses 

  • How we should center ourselves in the classroom 
  • Some counterintuitive thoughts on our relationship with students 
  • Focusing on our learning from everything 
  • Advice for teachers who are burning out 
  • Encouragement for all you teachers working so hard

Bio from Joan Flaherty: I'm a faculty member in the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management at the University of Guelph, Canada, where I teach communications. My research is in the area of teaching and learning.
