This paper explores what physical education teachers with more than five years of experience think about their career (perceptions, feelings, actions, etc.) in schools with more than 50% immigrant students. From a qualitative perspective, a multiple case study (n=12) was conducted in the province of Barcelona. Semi-structured interviews and non-participant observations were the instruments used, and content analysis was employed to interpret them. As a general conclusion, this study revealed that, despite all the difficulties that teachers found throughout their careers, most of them had a very positive perception of their emotional mood and their professional career in a multicultural school. This could debunk the social image of this school as problematic and conflictive for students and teaching staff.
