Mrs. Najakka Hargrove
Special Education Lead Teacher

I co-teach with grades K-2 in all subject areas specified in the students’ Individualized Education Program (IEP). I provide small group instruction using a research-based reading program called “Wilson Fundations”. This program provides a systematic and explicit approach to reading and spelling with phonics. It leaves no room for guessing because all concepts are taught directly.
