Teachers are overwhelmed by very many psychosocial support needs from colleagues, learners and even parents.

At some point during the long break in 2020, I was so much afraid of contracting COVID- 19 that I strictly stayed indoors for very long, doing very little outside the house.

By joining support groups, I was able to understand how to handle most of the issues after we shared our experiences.

I probably felt the need to share on a challenge I had with a son involved in bad company and negative peer influence and a health issue I was facing that I felt was somewhat overwhelming to me at the time.

Benefits of joining a support group.

1) One gets to interact with persons of same age and share common challenges being faced.

2) Peers can offer advice on how to solve those issues especially if they have been through similar experiences.

3) You get a person to listen to you even if they don't do anything else to assist. Having someone to listen is key.

Challenges of joining a support group..

Some people judge too harshly and are poor listeners.

There could also be people that will give wrong advice that aggravates the situation.

Some other people make a mockery of the situation at hand and offer no sensible advice.

Rules that would guide the group...

1) Respect

2) Honesty

3) Integrity

4) Peace

5) Sincere love with no strings attached.

During Covid 19pandemi, most teachers went through psychological and emotional challenges. Some were infected and relatives and friends infected. It was such a trauma to see significant people in the society die of Covid.

Personally, I was on leave, it ended during the lock down. My casualty was not returned and I went without a salary for three months. I needed someone to talk to and just be listened to.

There is need to have support group where one goes for supervision after being overwhelmed by issues at home and school. Also to gain knowledge on helping our students based on others experiences.

Needs and challenges of teachers include 

High work pressure ; Impossible workloads; undisciplined learners; teacher burn-out; poor health; loss of loved ones; having terminally I'll family members; financial constraints ; dysfunctional marriages and family. 

My own needs include high workload, my own health issues, loss of close family members. 

Peer support groups are beneficial because they connect people,  they build camaraderie, they expose members to a wide variety of views on any issue, provide a platform to learn from the experiences of others,  indeed a problem shared is half solved.

Challenges.  Group dynamics come into play. Members may form sub-groups within the main group; wariness for lack of confidentiality ; the vulnerability that comes with self disclosure ; balancing to get a convenient meeting time and place is a challenge since members have different work and social schedules.

2. NORMS. 

a. Be open -minded

The need to feel supported and having a soldier to lean on. The need to have an outlet for stressful situations. The need to always feel someone close shares with what you experience or is experiencing.

  • Increased workload

  • Short holidays

When the challenges above have affected me personally, I needed someone to share with and come up with possible ways to cope.

Benefits are having a safe space to share our challenges and ideas. The challenges would be lack of confidentiality.

1.poor performance in internal and external examinations (kcse).

Most students were not performing well in the exams after resumption of learning

They had forgotten everything that they were taught.

This really demoralized most teachers our group, especially me.

2.I personally was pychologically and emotionally affected because our school registered adrop seriously after a very long time of good performance in kcse

I talked to my wife who encouraged me not to give up.

3.Joining the group really helped me to realise that I was not the only one affected, even my peers faced equally the same challenges.
