Teacher Professionalism During the Pandemic Courage, Care and Resilience

This new book is co-authored by Professor Christopher Day, Dr Helen Victoria Smith, Ruth Graham and PhD student, Despoina Athanasiadou.


This insightful book uniquely charts the events, experiences and challenges faced by teachers during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic including periods of national lockdowns and school closures.

Research-based and evidence informed, this key title explores the multiple media outputs created by teachers in a variety of different socio-economic contexts. The authors reflect on their stories through a series of themed analyses, as well as describing and discussing key issues related to the enactment of teacher professionalism in challenging times.

With fascinating vignettes and interview extracts that reinforce the idea that teachers can manage rather than survive, this book unveils a strong sense of moral purpose, professional identity, commitment, care and resilience. It will be of interest to teachers, head teachers and teacher educators internationally.
