School Leadership Support: Teaching During Pandemic
Pandemic, teaching and learning, elementary education, photovoice, action research, online learning, school leadership
The purpose of this study was to better understand how the current COVID-19 global health pandemic has professionally and emotionally impacted elementary-level teachers. Teachers experienced diverse challenges during this unprecedented time with a rapid shift from in-person to online learning. Two overarching themes emerged based on participant experiences: abandoning best practices and increased stress and emotional pain. Implications for practice included the need for school leaders to evaluate the current level of support being provided to teachers and assess areas of need to support professional and emotional growth with the backdrop of the pandemic. We encourage future research with all educators to better understand how they are experiencing this health pandemic including the school leaders themselves.
