The study was conducted at the Eastern Samar State University Main Campus during the second semester of the school year 2018 to 2019. It aimed to determine the Emotional Intelligence (EI) of the respondents in terms of their perceptions of emotions; utilization of emotions, managing oneâ€™s emotions, and managing otherâ€™s emotions. It also intended to describe their student teaching performance in terms of their average grade in Student Teaching in the Elem/Sec Schools subject; and to determine whether there is significant relationship between these variables. . A total of 160 respondents were identified through total enumeration . Likert-type questionnaire was used to gather data as well as secondary data and employed both Descriptive and Inferential statistics for the analysis of the gathered data.. The findings of the study revealed that the respondentsâ€™ Emotional Intelligence were interpreted as â€œhighâ€ in terms of the four(4) components of Emotional Intelligence (EI) . It also reflected that 95.6% or majority of the senior students were excellent in their teaching performance. Further results reflected that there was no significant relationship between the respondentsâ€™ Emotional Intelligence(EI) in terms of the four(4) components and their student teaching performance. The results of the study implied that COED senior students can highly recognize, use, understand, and manage their own emotional states to solve emotion related problems. They have also developed the necessary skills for teaching and can excellently practice the techniques , skills, and positive attitudes in teaching in preparation for the real world of teaching profession as reflected in their student teaching performance. However It can also be inferred from the findings that the respondentsâ€™ emotional intelligence do not enhance their student teaching performance as there is no significant correlation between these two variables.
