Authors(2) :-Von Anthony G. Torio, Myla Zenaida Cabrillas-Torio

Philippine psychology is a unique identifier of the people of the Philippines. It is the psychology born out of the experience, thought and orientation of the Filipinos, based on the full use of Filipino culture and language according to Pe-Pua and Protacio-Marcelino (2000). One inherent character of Filipinos is being charismatic. This paper aims to integrate the concepts of Philippine psychology and Filipino teacher's charisma in the effective delivery of their classes. The study aims to pilot a developed instrument for measuring teaching effectiveness in class and see how students assess the charisma of a classroom teacher. The study involved two groups of participants, one is a group of in-service teachers and the other is a group of student-respondents handled by a particular teacher whose teaching effectiveness, as defined by a charisma inventory, was measured. The group of student-participants served as the population of the study. One student-group is a group of pre-service teachers (n=65) and another student-group is a group of basic education students (n=131). At the end of the year, a teaching effectiveness inventory in the context of charisma in teaching was administered to the students. A google forms equivalent of the developed instrument was used to gather 14.29% (n = 28) of the evaluation of the students. Results revealed that the teacher possessed all charisma traits with an outstanding mark with character traits receiving the highest rating of 4.71 and teaching techniques with the lowest rating of 4.51. The instrument was found to have high reliability with an alpha coefficient of 0.913.
