Hi!  My name is Tom Stanko and I am in my second year as the 7th grade Geography/World History teacher for North Star Middle School.  I am entering my 6th year as an educator and can not wait to make improvements and get students excited for my class! This is my first year as the Student Council Advisor. We will be organizing fundraisers, incentive days, dances, the food cart, and other activities for our school! I am also entering my second year as one of the assistant coaches for our Jr. High Baseball program.


I currently live in Greensburg near the Westmoreland Mall.  I attended California University of PA where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis on Social Studies in 2013.  I am certified to teach Social Studies 7th-12th grade, as well as any subject in 4th-6th grade.




Please be sure your student is ALWAYS checking our Google Classroom page, as well as the "What Can I Do In Advisory" Google Document for any announcements and assignments.


The links located on the right side of the page will direct you to the applications frequently used in my class! Students should be using their school log in information that they use to access the Chromebooks in school, to enter ALL of those applications!




Contact me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you have any questions or concerns!  You can reach me by email: or phone: (814) 893-5616 x3313.
