Numeracy education stands as a pivotal component of the educational landscape, necessitating attention from both administrators and teachers. To facilitate the ongoing improvement of teachers’ numeracy instructional skills, it becomes imperative to confront the barriers hindering students’ attainment of educational objectives. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the numeracy instruction provided by mathematics teachers, with an emphasis on its impact on curriculum and pedagogy enhancement. Additionally, it identified issues in the management of numeracy instruction, forming the foundation for forthcoming numeracy management initiatives targeting elementary school teachers. This study employed a researcher-developed questionnaire to conduct a descriptive survey involving 30 elementary mathematics teachers from Marawoy Elementary School. Utilizing statistical tools, specifically the mean, responses were meticulously analyzed, while issues concerning numeracy management instruction were methodically extracted and interpreted thematically. The study affirmed the robust alignment between teachers’ knowledge content and pedagogical approaches with the diverse learning needs of their students. Notably, instructional materials, classroom management, and assessment techniques exhibited variation according to students’ learning capabilities. Unfortunately, suboptimal Internet connectivity and limited access to learning resources only marginally supported the integration of technology in the teaching and learning processes. Consequently, the implementation of a numeracy management program was recommended to bridge instructional gaps among teachers in the domain of numeracy.
