See what SMFHS coaches/teachers Ken Miller, John Moyer and Jim Scelza are doing this summer.
In my last blog, I explored what some of the employees in the SMF school district are doing during summer break. Many of the staff members are volunteering, taking on second jobs and continuing to work with children and families throughout the summer. I am back with three more stories of our teachers/coaches; all who work in Stow’s neighboring Village of Silver Lake, as boat house managers.
Ken Miller, Boys’ High School Golf Coach (and retired teacher), along with John Moyer, SMFHS AP Government, Social Studies teacher and National Honor Society adviser, and Jim Scelza, who teaches Math at SMFHS work at the lake managing many of the daily activities. Combined, they have over 30 years’ experience working at Silver Lake, and over 80 years’ experience teaching and coaching in our school district.
Each of the teachers work 5 to 6 hour shifts part time throughout the summer. Some of their responsibilities include performing light grounds maintenance and overseeing the equipment and facilities. However, they each agree that their biggest responsibility is ensuring the lake goers remain safe during their visit, while also serving as the helping hands when someone gets into trouble while in or on the water.
Miller, Moyer and Scelza say working at the lake is a great way to spend their summers because of its beauty and the variety of the work they encounter. They also find their work rewarding, knowing that they are responsible for the experience people have while they are there. A bonus of the job includes seeing friends—both old and new.
Not a bad gig, if you ask me!
I hope you enjoy what is left of the summer, and your family can squeeze in as much fun and excitement as possible over the next few weeks before school gets back into full swing!
