The study was conducted to determine whether teachersâ€™ innovative work behavior is mediating the relationship between teacher engagement and studentsâ€™ learning outcomes in mathematics. The study utilized a quantitative, non-experimental design using the correlational research method. The respondents were 288 grade ten students in four different schools in the division of Tagum City. A simple random sampling was used to identify the respondents. Two sets of research instruments were used in this study, and the Statistics tools applied were mean Pearson r and regression analysis. Findings showed that teacher engagement was highly extensive while the level of studentsâ€™ learning outcomes was very satisfactory. Moreover, the level of teachersâ€™ innovative work behavior was high. Results also revealed no significant relationship between teacher engagement and studentsâ€™ learning outcomes. There was no significant relationship between the teacherâ€™s innovative work behavior and studentsâ€™ learning outcomes. However, there was a significant relationship between teacher engagement and innovative work behavior. Lastly, there is no significant mediation takes place in the model. It does not claim further that teachersâ€™ innovative work behavior influence studentsâ€™ learning outcome in mathematics. It is recommended that further researchers exploring the mediating effect of teachersâ€™ innovative work behavior on the relationship between teacher engagement, and studentsâ€™ learning outcomes be conducted to substantiate the findings.
