In order to make sure no child is left behind I am working to make sure that the special education students in my resource room are not left behind academically or technologically. I work with students who are economically disadvantaged and many are without many of the necessities needed for everyday survival at home including technology. Therefore, I am requesting a laptop computer to provide these economically and academically challenged students with a chance to "run with the pack". A laptop computer will also enable my students the opportunity to enhance the remediation received in the resource room and assist them with reading skills, writing skills, and math concepts. Many of these students are disabled in various ways and the computers will make learning exciting and provide them with tools to prepare them to become successful, independent, contributing members of society. A laptop for their use will also make the resource room more inviting and heighten the students' desire to attend. It is my desire to always encourage and work with my students to make them feel as good as everyone in the regular classes and to make sure that they are equipped to function in a society that does not always understand one's disability. The laptop will set things in motion and allow these students the chance to open up a whole new world.
