Dear AZACS Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Melissa Ellis Caschetta and I will be the Teacher in the ELA & Social Studies in the Functional Academic Program, as well as the IEP Service Coordinator at the Upper Campus. This is my first year at AZACS, and I am excited to be a part of this school community.
I am originally from Minnesota and moved to Phoenix to enjoy the sunshine. In 2004, I took a position as an instructional assistant in a special education classroom and found my passion for teaching students with autism. In 2010, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s in Special Education. I was a special education teacher for 8 years in the Phoenix public schools system and taught students in the elementary and middle school settings. I am looking forward to learning and growing more with each student.
