Teachers, like everyone else, were surprised by the health emergency resulting from the covid-19 pandemic, however, they are constantly updating to be able to respond correctly to the new challenges that arise in the educational field. It has not been easy, because they live with uncertainty in the face of decisions that are made so suddenly by the corresponding authorities, which is why this leads to doubts about their teaching role in the face of the various modalities adopted in educational institutions; they wonder if their lesson plans, assessments, and instructional materials are properly structured.
