This research has been done in order to examine the burnout levels of physical education (P.E.) teachers. 275 PE teachers, who serve in the 2012-2013 academic year at the secondary and high schools under the Ministry of National Education assigned in Ordu province constitute the research process.In addition, 163 PE teachers assigned in Ordu province who have been contacted by "random sampling method" constitute the sampling group of the research. In order to collect the data, "Personal Information Form" and "Maslach Exhaustion Inventory-Educator Form" have been used. Inanalysing the data; the test of independent group for the comparison of two groups in terms of test of normality, one way variant analysis for the comparisons of three or more groups;due to homogeneity of variants,Scheffe and LSD multiple comparison tests of post-hoc tests have been used in order to determine the source variations found meaningful of the one way variant analysis. As a result of this review it has been determined that some of the data do not have a normaldistribution and Mann-Whitney U test has been used for binary cluster comparison.For the statistical analysis in the research, significance levels have been taken as 0.05 and 0.01.According to the results of the research;gender,marital and educational status of physical education teachers create no difference in their levels of burnout.Statistically significant differences were not observed for the age of teachers in the emotional and depersonalisation subscale scores mean (p> 0.05).A significant difference has been detected in personal achievement scores mean which is one of the subscales of burn out (p <0.05),In comparison of the groups;the difference seen is that,the average of teachers who are 40 years old and above (24,39 +/- 3,56) is higher than the average of ones that are 20-29(22,16 +/- 3,63) and 30-39 (22,68 +/- 3,74) years old.
