Mrs. Michelle Giltner
6th grade is a wonderful and exciting year and I am very excited to be your child's 6th grade teacher and share that experience. I am teaching English Language Arts, also known as ELA. Reading and Writing will be the focus of our Blocks. I look forward to working with your 6th grader and guiding him/her to become a successful academic and community leader.
I am originally from inner city Chicago and moved to Arizona 22 years ago. This is my 39th year of teaching but only my 5th year at Meridian. I have taught students from Kinder-8th grade but 6th grade is my favorite. Science and Reading are my passions in school. I have my Masters in Reading as well as have taught Language and Grammar for many years so it makes sense that I am teaching ELA.
When I'm not at school I love being outdoors....hiking, camping, watching the night sky. I constantly share with students about the incredible heavenly bodies we can see in the night sky and challenge them to get out there and find them too.
I've been married to my husband George for 39 years. Our son Ernie, is 28 years old and has recently moved back to Arizona after living in Atlanta, Georgia for 2 years.
I am so excited to be your child's teacher and look forward to a fantastic year of growing and learning together.
