I'm a Special Ed Para and Being Pulled to Sub (almost) Daily

2022.01.16 18:37 notagoldengirl I'm a Special Ed Para and Being Pulled to Sub (almost) Daily

For context, we have been back from break for 2 full weeks now, we came back on January 4th. In the school days since then (9 days) I have subbed 7.5 of them for other teachers in the building who could not get substitutes or had to call out last minute and there wasn't enough time to get a sub. This alone is exhausting, and in no way am I blaming the teachers. I am, however, blaming the administration. I understand that we need substitutes and that specific problem doesn't belong to administration, but pulling me 7.5/9 days?
I’m genuinely concerned. All of the students that I work with have IEP requirements of 40 mins/day for 4x/week, and I haven't even been in their classes for more than 1 class period last two weeks. There's one class that I go in that I don’t even remember the last time I was in because of how often I’m being pulled.
I have students coming up to me in the hallway and telling me they miss me, asking if I'm coming back to their class, asking where I've been. I have teachers telling me students are asking where I am, if I’m coming back, saying "I wonder who has her as a substitute today? I hope they know they're lucky, I miss her being in our class.", some of the teachers I work with are struggling to fully make accommodations for students who have autism while also being able to work with the rest of the class. I know it's not my fault, but I just don’t know what to do at this point. Every day that I go into work I fully anticipate being pulled to cover someone else. I don’t know the last time I was able to work a full day of my actual special ed para job.
I feel like if I was a non-special ed para it would be less stressful, I could be wrong about that. I just know that legally we're not following the student's IEP requirements and I’m being forced to put the 21 students I work with at a disadvantage because I keep being pulled to sub. I told the principal in charge of substitutes about this late last week and they said that they hear me, but that I don’t need to come to them again in a few weeks because it's gonna be the same answer. It feels so pointless. I understand we're going through COVID as well as labor shortages, but I just feel like there needs to be something I can do here.
Is anyone else experiencing this in their schools, whether it be as a special ed para or a non-special ed para, or even a teacher who isn't able to have their paras in the room lately? I just feel like I’m being thrown around constantly. Sometimes it's covering for multiple teachers in one day, sometimes I get pulled to cover P.E. unexpectedly. It's just exhausting at this point and I really do not know what to do. I love working with the kids and I genuinely care about them, if I didn't then I would've quit by now. I just don’t really know what to do about it all given that I’m pretty sure not being with the students is illegal. I’m scared to even talk about it because I know it's not completely legal, but I've been repeatedly told that not having a teacher in a room is a bigger problem, which I can agree with, it just seems like we're deciding between the lesser of two evils at this point.

My job took the 40 hours of sick hours I get a year for covid leave on the first week of the year. I only have the stuff that rolled over from last year which is two days of time and I was only there half the year. And now they aren’t letting us switch shifts so my time off options are so limited that I’m not even stressing about going in if I need a day off. They can fire me at this point for all I care.

2022.01.16 18:37 techbutfit To people struggling to cut off gaming-addicted friends who try to pull you back in.

I am writing this post for anyone else who needs to read this, it is completely okay to cut off 'friends' or acquaintances that only want to talk to you to get you to play whatever game they are addicted to.

Don't let them do it. Don't let them project onto you that you are the 'bad person' for not wanting to waste your life away on uninteresting mechanisms like they themselves are willing to. Doesn't matter how long you've known them, or that you feel bad for them if they don't have anyone to play with. That's not your problem. Your prerogative is to work on your own life to be your best self, and it is not your responsibility to get your 'gaming friends' to see that there are more important things in life than wasting away on some game.

My own biggest issue was that when I finally realized that video games are not something I want to waste my life on anymore, I tried to slowly get the people I considered 'friends' from these online landscapes to see that as well but to no avail. Some or most of them I can see are severely depressed and or dealing with other issues and it's pretty clear that video games are their drug of choice to mend the pain. However, I only succeeded in dragging myself back to the swamp with them in some capacity, delaying my own self growth.

Don't let that happen to you. I'm writing this as a reminder to myself but I also believe that there are people on here that are in the midst of similar situations and so I hope that this is a little reminder to take care of yourself first.

Good luck out there friends and stay focused. ❤️

I'm feeling that this year's X95 series will release earlier than the last one which was very late in the year indeed.
