Many language teachers in Australia are itinerant – meaning they travel between schools and even though they may have a ‘base school’, having minimal time in a school means it is difficult to build solid relationships and feel a sense of belonging. I wonder if this is the case in other countries?
Even teachers who are based in one school may find that they move from classroom to classroom, particularly teachers in primary schools. There are many difficulties when you don’t have your own teaching space, but sometimes the fight is just not one that can be won.
*Are you an itinerant teacher?
*What are your experiences, positive and negative, of being an itinerant teacher?
*What’s your advice for surviving and striving when you have a different teaching space for every lesson?
