Program Officer, Teacher Development
Kimberly Masloski joined KSTF in summer 2012, bringing over 20 years of physical science teaching experience. For one year, she worked full time as a Program Officer, Teacher Development, before returning to the classroom and transitioning to part time status at KSTF. She currently teaches Chemistry I, Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry, Physical Science, Physics, and Integrated Science courses at Steubenville High School, located in Steubenville, Ohio. As a classroom teacher, she is active in the school community, volunteering to advise students in extracurricular clubs and serving on curriculum and accreditation committees. Additionally, she serves as chair of the science department and site coordinator for High Schools that Work (HSTW), a local consortium of school districts.
Kim is currently working on her Ed.D. in science education at the University of Pittsburgh, where she has completed her coursework and served as an instructor in methodology courses for their Masters of Arts in Teaching program. She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Muskingum College in 1992 and upon graduation, taught at Bethel Park High School and Keystone Oaks High School in Pittsburgh, Pa. In 2000, Kim received her master’s degree in education from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio, where she later moved.
A strong believer in learning as a lifelong process, Kim has continually sought opportunities for professional development, creating an ever-evolving classroom of opportunity for her students. She enjoys working with KSTF Fellows, as they begin the evolutionary process of becoming a teacher.
For the last 14 years, Kim has lived in Ohio with her husband Mark, who is an educator of students with special needs, and their three daughters: Emiley, Hannah, and Briana.
