About Me

My name is Jenise Sackett and I teach K-4th grade Special Education students.  I have a wonderful para professional, Mrs. Sharma, who works with me to support specific students.  My classroom is considered a resource room.  A resource room is a classroom where a special education program can be delivered to a student with a disability.  It is for students who have Individual Education Plans (IEP’s) and need some special instruction in an individualized or small group setting for a portion of the school day.


This will be my 5th year at Val Vista Academy.  I graduated from Arizona State University in 1994.  I taught resource, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and cross categorical self-contained over 11 years before my husband and I had our two girls.  I was privileged to be a stay at home mom for six years before returning to teaching.  When not teaching, I love to go up north.  We spent a lot of time camping when my girls were young, and now have a cabin in Strawberry.   It is so nice to be able to enjoy the snow in the winter and the cooler temperatures in the summer!


I look forward to working with you and your child to meet their individual needs.  Please feel free to call, email or stop by my classroom.
