This study, which aims to examine the distance education experiences of people who work as teachers but who are also parents during the COVID-19 pandemic uses descriptive phenomenology, an approach used in qualitative research. The analysis revealed six main themes that explain the distance education experiences of parent-teachers -- students' academic learning environment, teacher-student communication, use of EIN (education information network) and live lessons, family support, advantages and limitations of distance education, and teachers' views on distance education. The study concluded that the academic learning environment students have during distance learning is inadequate, that the quality and duration of student-teacher communication during distance learning is inadequate, that the quality of teacher-student communication favored students in private schools over teacher parent-children communication, that parent-teachers possessed negative views about distance education, and that distance learning led to unequal opportunities among students..
