    Every teacher also has to leave their room and teach in another for a period or two so it's fair.

    Same here, except for the most veteran teachers.

    All of our STEAM teachers and part-time reading teachers are itinerant. They do not have their own classrooms and share space. We just don’t have room for all the extra staff members.

    Why do hire more staff members than you have space available?

    What is the population of your school? Mine is ~2,750 with about 120 staff members and we have more than enough room for everyone to have their own classroom.

    Our school is too small for the number of students we’re supposed to be serving. It’s a district office issue that I have no control over.

    There are no cart teacher (as this thread described) at my school district, although some special education teachers in the middle schools and high schools have their own mobile carts with materials to take to the Inclusion classes. To clarify, these SPED teachers do have their offices and classrooms.

    The only cart teacher we have is the art teacher.

    I finally get a home-based room next year. We still share some periods but at least I can set up a classroom and get more than a drawer in someone eles room.

    I have never understood why anyone thinks it's ok for an ART teacher to be on a cart. Art and science have the most materials, and the classroom management depends heavily on how those materials are handled. Art teachers get treated way too poorly.

    2 specials teachers share a room so for half the year one teacher gets the room and the other teacher gets the cart. We had to convert the art room into a classroom a few years ago.

    It started out on a rotation basis in my school, but then principals would use it as a weapon - never giving them a room - to get teachers they didn't care for to resign. (I'm not saying that's the case in your instance)
