(Elementary school in a district with a sub shortage)

In our building, our non-academic specialists and counselor are on a rotation for filling classroom sub jobs that are unfilled. SPED and reading/math interventionists are not on the rotation.

I'm actually the reading specialist at my school, not a SPED teacher. Even though I would only be asked to cover a classroom in an emergency (we'd need to have 6 unfilled classroom jobs before I would get pulled), I am impacted because most of the time if I am gone my sub ends up getting pulled to cover a classroom job. I serve on district committees so end up being gone a few days a month and I think I've had a sub once or twice this year, the rest of the times my sub has been pulled. It stinks because I spend time writing the plans and then they aren't used, and I have a few very capable subs who love working with my groups who take my jobs way ahead of time and then they end up getting thrown into a random classroom.
