My name is Kristen Masciantonio. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I attended the University of Pittsburgh where I obtained both my undergraduate degree and master's degree in education. My favorite college memories are working for the University of Pittsburgh Child Development Center and cheering for the university. I'm a Steeler fan! I started my teaching career in Pittsburgh in 2001. I was an instructional support teacher for 1 year in Mt. Lebanon School District and taught fourth grade for 7 years in Burrell School District. When my husband was transferred for work, we relocated to Bucks County. I taught sixth grade for 6 years at Groveland. This will be my fifth year teaching 6th grade at Jamison. I took a few years off teaching while my daughter battled a brain tumor. I'm happy to share that she is off treatment, doing well and continues to get a little stonger each day. My family is everything to me. My husband works for Origin/Jocko Fuel and enjoys coaching football and wrestling. Our son Dominic is 11 years old. He's the best big brother. He loves football, wrestling and math. Gianna, our little super hero, is 7 years old. She loves playing with other kids, painting, drawing, reading and riding horses. In any free time, I enjoy helping kids battling pediatric cancer and practicing yoga. I love teaching. I'm proud to be your teacher this year.Here are some pictures of my family.
Here are some special memories that were captured in the classroom over the past 22 years.
