The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate the life experiences and beliefs of highly effective teachers regarding classroom management in diverse rural school populations. The research for this phenomenological study utilized the narrative inquiry method of data collection. This study explores the beliefs, background and experiences of exemplary teachers in the area of classroom management. It was also focused on teachers who face the challenges inherent in a diverse rural school population. The goal of this study was to develop a deeper understanding of how individuals become the highly effective teachers and classroom managers needed in our classrooms today. The study indicated a correlation between effective teachers and these factors: the ability to build relationships with students; high expectations; well-developed classroom procedures and a belief in the relational care of students. School experiences, family relationships and spiritual background were factors identified in the development of these teachers.
