The pandemic COVID-19 has brought a significant shift in the working pattern in all the sectors, and it has brought up a trend of working from home. Each domain and sector is going virtually to prevent social contact with others. Since the last few months, there have been many changes in different industries, among which the schools and colleges are the ones who have never thought of switching everything virtually this early. This research focuses on school teachers who are conducting online classes and working from home for the first time in their teaching career. There are 101 responses collected through direct conversation, and questionnaires floated through different platforms. While working from home, teachers are juggled with their daily routine household work, preparing and conducting online sessions, and assessing them. There is a significant impact on students' learning ability and productivity while attending classes. However, not everyone goes through the smooth process of both the student's and the teacher's part. There are challenges faced in the availability of proper infrastructure, teaching methods, and productive learning. If the work from home strategy were executed correctly, not in a rush due to the pandemic, it would have been easier for everyone to work more efficiently.
