Mr. Kristian Wontroba

My name is Mr. Kristian Wontroba, but many students and even some staff know me as “Mr. W”. I am the Speech-Language Pathologist at Forestville Rd. Elementary! I came to Forestville in May 2012, and I just love it here! I enjoy helping our Forestville students learn how to communicate more effectively!

I was born and grew up in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Uniontown is close to Pittsburgh and also very close to the Pennsylvania-West Virginia border. My mom, my dad, and my 6 siblings still live in Uniontown, and I enjoy visiting them over summer and during holiday breaks!

I graduated from Geibel Catholic High School in 1993. In 1995, I earned an Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Penn State University and worked in a personal care home for a while as a Head Nurse for the facility. In 2004, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology & Audiology from West Virginia University. I had to work hard and save up the money, but I finally graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 2009 with a Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I then moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2009. I love North Carolina! It feels like my true home!
