Over the last two decades Greece has gone from being a country that sends immigrants abroad to one that receives immigrants. One of the after months of this development is that a large number of foreign students attend Greek school, it was therefore thought fit that this project should examine and analyze Greek teachers. Views on foreign students with a view to investigating any stereotyping beliefs expressed in their speech. This is why such extensive reference is made to stereotypes in the theoretical part, focusing on the way in which the latter affect the formation of beliefs concerning people belonging to diverse groups. To investigate the above, it was deemed necessary to conduct individual semi- structured qualitative interviews with educators who teach in kindergartens and elementary schools. The educators answered the questions expressing their views and the latter were then analyzed using the qualitative content analysis method. The findings of this research, which are based on the educators’ views, indicate that teachers attribute difficulties mostly to foreign students’ different mother tongue as well as their family environment. Teachers create different identities for foreign students and thus, reproduce social stereotypes concerning those students.
