Description

The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of an educator's emotions on their tone of voice during teaching practices. This study was done at CS Elementary school, a Title 1 school located in Sunny Side, PA. At CS, 85% of the kids are from low-income homes; there is a 15:1 student per teacher ratio and 15% of students have a disability. I researched how a teacher's emotions can affect the way their voice is presented in the classroom because stress is a major factor in the life of an educator. Student surveys and journals were used to capture the day in the life of a teacher. There have been some set-backs to my study due to the global pandemic COVID-19 of 2020. Findings showed that emotions do in fact have an effect on the tone, but not as much as expected. It was obvious in the findings that mostly positive and encouraging tones were used despite internal emotions.
