Abstract
In this video, Jacqui Couper stresses on the need for educators to take care of themselves because it is only when they do this that they will be able to care for and teach the children, as well as positively interact with colleagues and parents of the children. Using an analogy of plants and a water can Jacqui foregrounds the need for teachers to constantly refill their energies through healthy life styles in order to cope with the exigencies of teaching and avoiding burnout. She then elaborately discusses how teachers can do so. This video lecture 2/5 of week 4 of the course: Educating Deaf Children: Becoming an Empowered Teacher.
