The purpose of this qualitative case study was to help identify administrators' perceptions of effective teaching in rural Northwest Missouri in secondary public schools in order to increase teacher and administrator effectiveness. Current members of the Northwest chapter of the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals participated in surveys, interviews, and a focus group to collect data to find common themes and trends. These methodologies indicated effective teaching is rooted in establishing relationships, high student/teacher engagement, student growth in content, high critical thinking, good classroom management skills, and the use of well-rounded classroom observation feedback.
