The main goal of this research is to describe the teaching experiences, problems, and concerns of fifty-seven multigrade teachers of schools in Ilocos Sur. It analyzed the positive and negative impacts of multigrade teaching, which was the basis for an extension program. The study made use of the descriptive survey method of research. The results showed that majority of the respondents are handling Grades 1 & 2 classes; 21-25 years of age, married, females, bachelor's degree holder; with 6-10 years of experience, belong to Salary Grade Scale of 11, and have attended training in the district, division, regional, and national level. The respondents believed that the level of assessment of the multigrade classes is very satisfactory; there is no significant relationship between the profile of the respondents and the level of assessment on multigrade classes; there are no significant differences on the three sets of respondents. Also, participants responded that there is too much work for teachers in multi-grade classrooms. Nevertheless, they enjoyed and are used to teaching multigrade classes. Given such findings, the "Turo Mo, Gawa Ko, Kagalingan ng Mag-aaral Ko:" (Your Teaching, My Output, Improvement of my Learners)A CTE Extension Program is proposed to provide supplementary aid to multigrade teachers.
