Evangeline D Dela Cruz



An attempt to contribute to the current literature to look into novice teachers’ perceptions of their strengths and struggles when it comes to classroom management which is recognized as a critical component of a good education and considered as educational phenomenon is the main focus of this study. Likewise, to have a collection of information originated from personal classroom practices of an identified group of twenty novice teachers in intent to create a paper that may perhaps be of practical support to novice teachers in the subject of education. The face-to-face interviews and questionnaires with the group of novice teachers (n=20) produced the qualitative data as the major part of the evidence. The results of the cross-case analysis indicated that novice teacher participants in this research understand that each day novice teachers have to deal with students with social, mental and family or personal issues as well as classroom distress.
