My students are special education students who are in the regular education classrooms. They are students who need services in reading, writing, and math, typically for 30 minutes each a day. I work with third and fourth graders at a public school. This school has an 80% free or reduced price lunch percentage. My students are all fully functional and able to participate in specials as well as extracurricular activities. A couple of my students only receive behavior services daily.
My students will benefit from me having a laptop because I will have the opportunity to plan great lesson plans for my students so that they are able to reach their IEP goals. My laptop was recently stolen from me so I am borrowing one from a co-worker. If I have my own laptop I can plan at home as well as school. I can also work on IEP's at home and not just during my prep. A laptop is essential to doing my job effectively. It will also allow me to incorporate technology into my lesson plans and allow for differentiation.
Having a laptop will also allow me to further my education in the current classes I am taking for my Reading Specialist License.
Me having my reading specialist license will allow me to gain the skills to teach my students reading strategies that I previously didn't have. This will allow me to grow as a teacher and gain more expertise to reach even more students and teachers.
