This study investigates the level of readiness of educators towards shifting to flexible teaching in terms of attitude and levels of anxiety. The respondents were 179 educators from the seven campuses of Northern Iloilo State University, Philippines selected through proportional random sampling. This study employed the descriptive cross-sectional study using a survey research design. Data were gathered using a validated and reliability-tested researcher-made questionnaire. Results were analyzed using statistical tools such as Means, Standard Deviation, and T-test for Independent Samples, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), and Pearson-r. The results of the study revealed that the educators’ level of readiness towards flexible teaching in terms of attitude was neither positive nor negative as an entire group, however, as to academic rank, instructors have positive attitudes while college professors have negative attitudes toward flexible teaching. In terms of anxiety, educators have mild levels of anxiety. No significant differences were observed in terms of attitude when classified as to age, sex, civil status, length of teaching experience, and workload, however, a significant difference was observed in terms of anxiety when educators were classified as to sex. Furthermore, the educators’ attitudes have a negative significant relationship to anxiety.
