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 huge Pittsburgh Steeler fan......bleed black and gold........although both of my children root strickly for the Eagles. I started my teaching career in Pittsburgh in 2000. 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. 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 a private equity company and enjoys coaching sports. Our son Dominic is 8 years old. He's the sweetest big brother. He loves all Philadelphia sports, wrestling, playing soccer, doing math and Pokemon. Gianna, our little super hero, is 4 years old. She loves playing with other kids, painting, drawing, riding horses and Shimmer and Shine. In any free time, I enjoy helping kids battling pediactric cancer, practicing yoga and shopping. I love teaching. I'm proud to be your teacher this year.
