This paper presents a categorization of pedagogical profiles of Physical Education teachers in multicultural schools, based on their perceptions, pedagogical interventions and professional histories. A multiple case study was conducted with twelve teachers from public schools in Barcelona where over 50% of students were immigrants. The study used semi-structured interviews and non-participant observation, and then conducted the corresponding content analysis. The data collected were analysed from the cross-cultural point of view, and three teacher profiles were established: “sensitiveinclusive”; “romantic-assimilator”; and “stressed out-prejudiced”. This classification allowed us to recognize the diversity of attitudes among these professionals and to analyze the most appropriate training and support needs for each case.
