The study is all about the travails of the Multigrade Teachers in the Division of Southern Leyte with which the quality education may be at stake. The phenomenological research design was utilized to explore, narrate and document the experiences of teachers in the three Cs: content, connection and character. With the travails narrated by the teachers, the study focused on how they effectively delivered the content; how connection was maintained with the learners in different grade levels in one classroom; and how the teacher ethically and professionally conducted the self-inside and outside the classroom to uphold quality multigrade education. The data were gathered from 31 multigrade teachers. The findings of the study revealed that the multigrade teachers gave their best effort to deliver quality multigrade education; the teachers could hardly have enough time to prepare appropriate instructional materials and learning activities to effectively maintain connection with the learners in different grade levels; and the teachers ethically and professionally conducted their character as they instrument for strong foundations of quality education. In conclusion, the quality of multigrade education depends on the teachers’ professional skills and attitude.
