Tempe Teacher


My name is Denise Sanetra.  I recently moved to Arizona from Chicago, Illinois.  I have been visiting Arizona for the past 23 years and when my daughter decided to move here to attend school, I decided it was time to make the move as well.  I was inspired to become a teacher, when I was given the opportunities to help out and be involved in many aspects of my own children’s learning at their school.   Special Education became my focus, when one of my own children needed extra support inside and outside the classroom. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Special Education at Roosevelt University in Chicago, and a Certificate in Transition from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.  For the past 7 years, I have been working at a Therapeutic Day School for kids on the Autism Spectrum.  I worked primarily with grades 9-12, and 12+ (18-21), teaching academics/vocational training. This is my first year with A+ Academy, and I couldn’t be happier to work with such wonderful staff, parents and students. Email Me!
