All About Mrs. Sackandy
My name is Alyssa Sackandy and I am the elementary itinerant gifted support teacher. I have the privilege of traveling to 6 of the 8 elementary schools in the Altoona Area School District to provide gifted support to our learners. I absolutely love being a part of the many families across the district. I have been a gifted support teacher since 2012.
I graduated from AASD in 2006. I attended Slippery Rock University (SRU) from 2006-2010 where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Elementary Mathematics and Special Education. I received my Masters Degree from SRU in 2016 in Special Education. I am also certified to teach Middle School Mathematics (grades 6-9).
I am married to Luke Sackandy, my high school sweetheart, and we have a handsome little boy named Kasen. He is one years old and a joy to be around. As a family we enjoy spending time together, traveling, and making fun memories. During my free time I like watching T.V, photography, playing with my boy, visiting the beach, and relaxing.
