    When I was in HS, cart teachers were plentiful. There were departments for the core courses. Imagine cubicles in a school! I remember science classes being located based on whether it was "lab day" or not.

    I have been dreaming about the ability to decorate a room since I started. It is not just that, but having the ability to set up routines like where kids go to find work they have missed, make bulletin boards, post key terms, or hang up student work. We are suppose to share but sharing equates to one small empty desk drawer and sometimes a shelf in a cabinet for kids to store thier books. If I want to put up student work the only place left are a few cabinet doors and sometimes the end (table to floor) of a lab station. We also share an office and desks and computers, but only some people share computers, others dont even though they are suppose to and already have a room. The whole thing is getting old fast.

    You can come decorate my room. I used to co-teach, and my co-teacher was really into that stuff. I can't be bothered. My room is just simple and free of clutter.

    Around here, I've seen Art, Music, and Computer teachers use carts, because they don't have a room. I've never seen other kinds of teachers without a room. When I subbed for the Special cart teachers, it was a pain having a classroom on wheels, especially wheeling around open paint cups across door jam bumps in the floor.

    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.
