From Drowning to Thriving: Addressing Teacher Burnout
Pandemic fatigue and COVID burnout are very real experiences we have likely all felt. We are quicker to snap at loved ones. We frequently feel overwhelmed. We seldom feel recognized when we do put in the effort. Those feelings can be documented across the board in all professions; however, if you have been following national and local news stories then you know that one profession hit very hard with burnout has been educators. Whether it’s due to concern over students’ physical and emotional well-being, worry about students’ academic growth, added stress from a teacher’s growing workload, or concern for their own (or their family’s) social and emotional well-being, educators are drowning.
Anderson County Schools Federal and State COVID-Relief Spending Informational Guide
Sitting in a meeting with the board at Anderson County Schools or watching the live stream of the meeting, one thing becomes perfectly clear: our school board makes decisions that are informed by feedback from all stakeholders and is focused primarily on what is best for the students in our district. Have we gotten parent input, student input, staff input, community input? Check. Will this new program help recover some of the student learning loss? Are we targeting intervention services? Will this decision provide clear and direct aid to students? Check, check, and check. This is the process Superintendent Mitchell and the rest of the board follow in all decisions to ensure that each choice is informed and focused on best practices for the students in our schools. So too with the choices of how our district should spend the federal and state relief funds provided for COVID-Relief.
No Matter the Weather, Anderson County Teachers and Students Stick Together
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky-- As the winter weather continues to impact our area, many of us recall fond childhood memories of snow days off of school spent lazing about our homes, sporadically going outside to play in the snow. When we would return to school, our teachers would spend time refreshing our memories on our most recent lessons before continuing on to new content. We all loved those snow days, but what we did not enjoy were the warm summer days tacked on to the end of the school year that had to be used as make-up days. The warm breeze wafting through the classroom window seemed to call louder than the snow ever did.
