The purpose of this study was to examine teacher perceptions of effective teaching by giving teachers the opportunity to voice their perspectives. Teachers that were determined to be effective through observations were personally interviewed in order to explore the qualities and attributes of highly effective teachers and what they believe to have the strongest impact on student achievement and success. In addition to teacher perceptions, this study also examined how teacher perceptions aligned with John Hattie’s work on teacher mind frame. By analyzing teacher perceptions five specific themes emerged from the data. Those specific themes aligned with seven of Hattie’s eight mind frames of effective teachers.
