Someone's in trouble...

And it isn't me.

During intervention time the interventionists were no shows, however I did hear/see them in the next room during their intervention time. We played sparkle and started math early.

I might have mentioned it to the principal on the way out.

As a former teacher, and now a sub, I hate when someone takes advantage of a sub.

I would think interventionists need to record a certain number of hours , making each missed session a problem. It's really sad that the interventionists we're a no show. One can only hope they were taking care of an important matter when you saw them next door. Good for you having the class play sparkle and starting math early. Sometimes it is hard to come up with a suitable plan as a sub when another staff member is scheduled to come in at a certain time.

I would hope the interventionists had a good reason for being no-shows, but from your post, it sounds more like, "Let's blow it off. The sub won't know the difference". Glad you mentioned it to the P.

Spedder1: I'm the same as you; former teacher now a sub. When I was a teacher I would never be a no-show on a sub. After all it's the students who we are all there for.

twin2: Maybe they were working on the folder learning games I saw them using with the other class. Perhaps they had lunch at the nearby Panera and couldn't get back in time.

mooba1: My thoughts exactly, that's why I mentioned it.

There's no excuse for what they did.

It reminds me of a time several years ago when I had a rough group for eighth grade math. Because they were so difficult, a special education teacher was assigned to co-teach the class for the hour they were there. It was part of her job. Before school started, she popped in to tell me she'd be coming to help teach later when this class arrived. It didn't happen. She never showed up, and never explained why she didn't come. It was one of the one of the worst classes I've ever had.

Intervention teachers either never show up or take one or two out for ‘help’. Had a horrible class yesterday. (HS science biology) had two students I was warned about since they would leave class for rr breaks and not return. (Yep did that, but one wanted to see nurse, other office. I couldn’t say no.)

She came in saw they were doing ‘busy’ work, took one student out (but left autistic student there) didn't return. Autistic student blows up and I calmed him by trying to ease his anxiety over her leaving. Finally sent him to an alternate room for rest of class. Hate to think about what would happen if I hadn’t known who he could see other than the intervention teacher.
So to all intervention and special needs teachers and aides out there - show up for your class if there is a sub that day! I know you don’t have a ‘meeting’ or any other excuse. And to those that show up and help me - thank you!!!

She may have had an IEP meeting, or had to cover another class, but I agree she should have let you know.

This situation does bother me. As a para I worked with a spec ed teacher that neglected a particular student, saying she couldn't always leave the playground because of another student. She forgot we had windows. We saw her sitting on the curb with her para friend chatting. This was the same para friend that she partied with on the weekends, the same para friend who was all over her FB.

I'm not saying a special ed teacher is never needed on the playground to help a student out there, but in most cases she didn't have any business out there. Our counselor and behavior specialist take care of most of the playground issues, whether they be a behavior or a developmental problem. The student she ignored knew he was being ignored, and his regular teacher had to be firm with him when he got upset. He didn't understand why. Plus he was a student that benefitted from the pull out sessions that she avoided. Thankfully that teacher moved on, but that student will never get that school year back.
