Additional Information: Research has yet to pinpoint the role of geography teachers' subject expertise and the influence that it can have on practice. This article is based on research conducted with 'expert' or experienced geography teachers to explore how they use their subject knowledge in their practice. The results from two teachers are presented here and illustrate how teachers can develop a personalised view of the subject which can then become important to them. The geography teachers described their geographical expertise as a guiding principle which influenced their practice and their decision making. The articles argues that nurturing such a relationship with the subject is important for new teachers of geography.
