Teachers' Health Management Practices in the Implementation of Blended Learning Modality
COVID-19 hit the world with devastating effects that stopped the usual system of our everyday lives and affected different sectors, including education. This has led the Philippine Education System to implement the blended learning modality as the alternative to the traditional face-to-face. The study seeks to describe the health management practices of the teacher participants in terms of health protocols in coming in and out of school, communication with parents, module releasing and retrieval, and hygiene and daily practices. Stratified random sampling was used to determine the participants. The participants' profiles were grouped by age, grade level taught, position, and years of service. One–way ANOVA and Tukey's posthoc test were used to treat the data and tested at 0.05 level of significance. It was found that there is no significant difference in the teachers' age, grade-level taught, and position. However, there is a significant difference in the teachers' years of experience in module releasing and retrieval. This implies that teachers with 9-15 years of teaching experience apply the suggested health restriction protocols in module releasing and retrieval more punctually than groups with other experience.
