Abstract

We still know remarkably little about the work of the teachers of Traveller children. Yet they help families gain access to schooling from preschool on, they work with class teachers to include Traveller pupils, they develop appropriate books and resources, and in their support of mobile pupils' learning they are leaders in the application of the latest technologies. This book describes what these teachers do and how they do it. It also reveals how they feel about their work and their relationships with the Traveller families and the wide range of professionals their work involves.
