This study examined the experiences of the out-of-field of physical education (BPED) interns. This research aims to explore PE interns' challenges when teaching subjects outside of their field and how they responded to these challenges. The study employed a phenomenological approach, and the data was collected from six PE student interns from Cebu normal university. The results revealed that teaching out-of-field subjects presents significant challenges for PE interns, they persevered and remained innovative in their teaching approaches. The study highlights two themes: (a) difficulties in teaching pedagogies and (b) opportunities perceived. The findings also suggested that the challenges of teaching out-of-field subjects allowed interns to improve their teaching skills, incorporated new strategies, and expanded their knowledge of different subjects. In conclusion, this study showed that while teaching out-of-field subjects may be difficult, it provided a valuable training ground for physical education interns to progress and improved their teaching abilities.
