Mike Martinelli » Bio


Hello and welcome to the 2021-22 school year.  I am Mr. Martinelli, one of the 5th grade teachers here at Trafford Elementary. I am entering my 23rd year of teaching all with the Penn Trafford School District. I have spent most of my career teaching 4th and 5th grade at Harrison Park, and 6th grade at Penn Middle. 
I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Elementary from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University.
I have a son who is a freshman in college majoring in Criminal Justice. My daughter is a 3rd grader at McCullough Elementary School. My wife teaches 4th grade in the Greensburg Salem School District. And I cannot forget our Golden Doodle Stella.
My hobbies include golf, fishing, hunting, bike riding, walking Stella, and spending time in the great outdoors!
I am looking forward to working with your child this year and to help them achieve their goals.
