The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of teacher mobility on the knowledge management based on the experiences of teachers and school principals of primary and secondary schools in Turkey. The mobility of teachers in Turkey is fairly high, which makes it significant to study in terms of school management. The analysis of qualitative interviews with thirty participants revealed several meaningful themes pertaining to the advantages and disadvantages of teacher mobility in terms of knowledge management, as well as the strategies to increase the contributions of teachers to knowledge management of the schools that they have to change. The results of this study contribute to an understanding of the effects of teacher mobility on knowledge management and the importance of school leadership in the process of teacher adaptation to new school environments, the topics that are not sufficiently explored in the context of Turkish education.
