The purpose of this qualitative dissertation was to explore the lived experiences of classroom teachers and how they experience classroom behavior. The main research question of the study was how teachers experience behavior problems in their classroom. Results of the interviews were grouped into six distinct themes. This dissertation employed a qualitative interview and data gathering process. Phenomenology was used as the research design in this dissertation. This mode of inquiry allowed me to capture the lived experiences of how teachers experience and perceive classroom behavior problems. Recommendations include creating open lines of communication between teachers and administrators, delineating clear responsibilities with all staff personnel, and making accommodations for individual students who have are chronically misbehaving.
