We all know how devastating the effects of COVID-19 has been on people around the world. Businesses, healthcare workers, professionals, and so many others. Sometimes we forget just how much Teachers have also been under during this time, so Anele And The Club wanted to check in on our SA teachers.

Earlier this year we discussed professions that need to be paid more - and what came out on top? teachers!

With schools opening, we are always chatting to the children and parents, so we thought we take some time to appreciate our teachers.

Teachers how are you feeling?

How are you coping?

Has your workload increased?

What are the procedures in place now due to the pandemic?

What can parents do to make teachers lives easier?

Honestly, I just think that so many of us have been putting in so much effort for these online lessons, which is great, but I don't think it's great for our little ones. Foundation-based teaching is all about interaction and social relationship building. I think people don't always realise how adaptive teachers have to be. Parents are upset about kids failing, but as teachers, we are also qualified and educated when it comes to picking up signs.

I think a lot of us are stressed about being exposed to the kids from all parts of the province. We also have to head back home and expose ourselves to our families.

You know what, under the circumstances, it's been fantastic (at our school). Having fewer people in a class is great because you're able to give each student more personal attention.
