Summer Food Service Program 2017 Sites (New Sites Added 6-15-17!)

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal Nutrition Guidelines, are provided to all children at approved SFSP Sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.

Community Action of Southern Kentucky is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

6 Ways to Avoid Teacher Burnout

Are You Feeling a Little Teacher Burn-Out?

Statistics show that nearly half of all teachers will leave the profession within five years. With that being said, Teacher Burn-Out is very real. Teacher Burn-Out has a way of creeping up out of nowhere and attacking you. It causes teachers to feel overwhelmed, to have no desire to be around other people that seem to be doing great, and to stop participating in meetings or other school events. Teachers also start to take mental health days to regroup for the final months of schools. A Burnt-Out Teacher is one who has lost their spark. The spark is something that is in a teacher’s smile when he or she greets their children. The spark is the driving force in everything we do as teachers. It carries us through the highs and the lows, the good times and the bad times. A Burnt-Out teacher is also one who complains about everything from children to parents to other staff. So, what can we do to protect ourselves from getting burnt out or crispy around the edges?

 Remember you are more than a teacher. You are someone's wife, someone’s husband, someone’s mother or father. You are someone’s sister, someone’s brother, someone’s son or daughter. Yes, you are a teacher but you are so much more than that.

 Remember it’s a job. Teaching might be the best thing that ever happened to you. It could be the best career you have. Remember teaching is an important career because you are touching young lives and influencing our future generation.

 Set boundaries and keep them. Set limits with how much you work in the evenings.

 Don’t get full of yourself. Stay humble. None of us know it all. Don’t set yourself and your class up for failure by letting your ego get in your way.

 Manage your expectations. Teaching is hard. No college class could prepare you for how hard it is. Be prepared to become a mental and emotional punching bag. You will fail. But that’s okay. Failure is a wonderful opportunity to get better.

 You will never be finished with your work. A teacher’s work is never done. There will always be something else you could be do-
