Itinerant teacher

A specially trained instructor who works in more than one school, providing special educational services to students and teachers. An itinerant teacher may teach a special subject such as art or music or a foreign language elective in several schools, none of which has enough students for a full-time instructor in those subjects. Some itinerant teachers are tutors of one or more individual students who, for whatever reason, need supplementary instruction in one or more subjects. Other itinerant teachers provide remedial or special education to slow or disabled students— again, in schools without enough students who need such services to warrant hiring a full-time teacher. Still another role of the itinerant teacher is that of a consultant to teachers who may need to learn special skills for teaching particular students, such as the learning disabled, in the general classroom situation.
