Abstract

The purpose of this qualitative, single embedded multiple case study was to explore teachers’ perceptions of classroom management training and its impact on self-efficacy and job satisfaction. This study was conducted at a large central Florida high school with a teaching staff of approximately 80; a sample consisting of 10 teachers was used to represent the population. For each participant, a pre-interview questionnaire and then semi-structured interviews provided data. The participants stated that they either did not receive any pre-service training in classroom management, cannot remember any training, or the training was not beneficial for preparing them for managing a classroom. This study found that negative student behavior has a significant impact on teacher job satisfaction and there is little support in place by administration to help teachers with this issue.
