The study focused on the way teachers can help shy pupils in the school setting. Its objective was to identify educators’ perceptions of the subject and the strategies they could employ with such pupils. To that end, a thematic analysis was performed on the responses attained from fifteen in-depth interviews with educators. The main finding is that teachers’ perceptions of shy pupils are skewed insofar as they don’t adequately consider shy pupils’ internal experiences. Practical strategies for assisting such pupils were also introduced. These strategies are demonstrated and discussed in the context of the theoretical literature on assisting shy pupils.
