This study investigates the efficacy of teachers' roles in face-to-face learning to mitigate learning loss post the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on grade VI at an exemplary elementary school. Employing a descriptive qualitative approach with a case study method, the research involves principals, grade VI teachers, and students. Findings reveal that the teachers' effective implementation of diverse learning media tailored to student needs, consistent application of consequences and rewards, and utilization of a YouTube channel for supplementary learning materials contributed to a significant reduction in learning loss. Notably, the school achieved outstanding literacy and numeracy abilities, ranking among the top nationally. The implications underscore the importance of innovative teaching methods and technology integration in post-pandemic educational recovery efforts.
