The outbreak of the novel coronavirus infection has been declared a public health emergency of worldwide concern by the World Health Organization last January 2020 (World Health Organization, 2020). Since then, most parts of the world have experienced a feeling of an extended period of uncertainty and unrest caused by the SARS-COV2 responsible for the Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the governments around the world have initiated a common goal to curb the spread of this highly contagious disease by avoiding face-to-face teaching-learning (Gonzalez et al., 2020) which has forced educators to transform their work online in a short period of time. This study aimed to understand the lived experiences of educators who are currently experiencing remote learning in teaching during the time of the CoVid-19 pandemic. Specifically, it examined the challenges that the teachers encountered during remote learning; Identified the strategies and coping mechanisms of teachers during the pandemic; and determined how teachers lead, motivate, and engage their students despite the challenges of the pandemic. The researcher utilized qualitative research, specifically, the researcher used Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR), an inductive method that is characterized by open-ended interview questions, small samples, a reliance on words over numbers, the importance of context, integration of multiple viewpoints, and consensus of the research team. It is especially well-suited to research that requires rich descriptions of inner experiences, attitudes, and convictions (Hill, 2005). The results of this showed that there are six categories with 28 subcategories for the Lived Experiences of Educators.
