About Me
My name is Melanie Walls. The 2018-2019 school year will be my third year as a teacher at Stargate, 
but I have been apart of the Stargate community for many years. I attended Stargate as a student for my 4th - 8th grade years and returned in 2012 to
 work as a site leader for Eagle's Landing and as a substitute teacher.

My educational background includes a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction both from the University of Colorado Denver.  In addition to my elementary teaching license, I hold endorsements in Gifted Education, Special Education, and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education. I strongly believe in differentiating my instruction to best meet the needs of all my diverse learners. 

In my free time I love to cook and bake, specifically decorating cookies!  I also love to spend time with my husband, Joe, and our two crazy puppies.  Bailey is our 9 month old golden retriever, and Ella is our 7 month old Welsh Corgi.  First grade is such an exciting grade with so much growth both academically and emotionally.  I am thrilled for this school year and to continue my teaching career at Stargate!
