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 and the Jr. High 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).
