The COVID 19 pandemic challenges the economy as well as education. Teachers have to be creative and innovative in their strategies as they migrate from face-to-face to online. Practices need to be adaptive to a situation where the students become anxious and stressful because of the sudden shift. This study investigated practices in teaching online classes. Descriptive and inferential statistics like MANOVA, ANOVA and LSD Post Hoc Test were used to analyze the responses from 159 respondents. Results showed that teachers used emotionally-related teaching practices such as mindfulness of the learners’ feelings and responses, positive attitude towards the learners, availability of the teachers when students needed help, and provision of avenues for student consultation. These teaching practices significantly differ in terms of the school. Practices in the use of interactive tools, games, physical exercises at certain times during online learning, cracking jokes and using humor during online classes had also significantly vary for each school. Teaching practices during the pandemic times solely depend on the capability of the school, teachers’ knowledge on technology, and maturity and experiences of teachers.
