In some places, classroom teachers teach some sort of EL block during the day rather than having a seperate EL teacher provide services. And in other places, they just require a certain number of teachers to have the certification and they just split the ELs among those classroom teachers.

Here in CO, my school does still have EL teachers, but it's definitely not a shortage area. Due to the number of EL students we have, it's a really popular choice for teachers to do some sort of EL program for their MA degrees, and a lot of teachers are seeking positions that would give them a break from being in the regular classroom. I know in my former district, where we used to have EL teachers, they've done away with the position all together and have classroom teachers teach a daily EL block.
