The COVID-19 Pandemic tested the dedication and commitment of every teacher in his profession; hence, this study aimed to determine the various coping mechanisms used by teachers in the Philippines from different sectarian and non-sectarian, private as well as public schools: elementary, junior high school, senior high school, and collegiate levels, and from the different regions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. A descriptive research design was used, there were 400 respondents, and an online survey questionnaire was deployed purposively for data gathering. The statistical treatments used were frequency, percentage, and ranking.
Researchers found the top 3 teachers’ stressors such as students being unable to complete work due to internet connectivity, poor internet connection, and conducting classes asynchronously. In order to cope with the stressors, teachers were prayerful, walking and talking with family members, and self-care.
Thus, teachers manage to cope with the stressors, and they were resilient to maintain the quality of instruction amidst environmental and global adversities brought by COVID-19 Pandemic.
