Sunday is typically the rest day and the family day. But for certain and valid reasons working students use Sunday for schooling. A Sunday school is usually attended by working individuals who are busy on weekdays and so to continue their needs of education they pursue through enrolling Sunday school class under the supervision of their Sunday school teachers.
The first role of the classroom teacher towards the learner is to assess the behavior of the students; to develop their knowledge and enhance skills; to create a good relationship as students and teachers; and to mold their students into a distinctive character by teaching good manners and right conduct. They are also the one who implements rule and regulations to organize and maintain the orderliness of his students, to be the role model of the class and to show the passion he has for his profession as teacher. However, being a Sunday school teacher is not a piece of cake because they have to sacrifice their rest day for the purpose of sharing their capability to those who are thirsty of knowledge such as the Sunday school students. Most of the teachers are teaching weekdays so it would be easy for them to manage the classroom. They handle the class accordingly and with the passion since professionalism is always maintained.
According to Honeyford (1982) from London the teacher plays a pivotal role in a student’s life. The teacher is the one influencing the student’s view of himself and the sort of progress he/she makes. Another idea from Laslett and Smith states that successful classroom management has been defined as producing a high rate of work involvement with a low rate of deviancy in academic settings. In our country Philippines, 15 percent of the total population as estimated is attending Sunday school classes. Therefore the greater the students in Sunday class the higher the demand of the teacher. Statement of the Problem
