This research provided information that led to the discovery, understanding and identification of pre-service physical educator’s classroom management concerns, problems, strategies and influences. The first round of surveying was completed previous to the teaching practicum, while the following survey rounds were completed following practicum. The inquiry required the calculation of the most prominent classroom management concerns, problems, strategies and influences by averaging indications emanating from a four point Likert scale. Results showed that pre-service physical educators command a humanistic perspective that is essential if they are to survive and grow as educators.
