Miss Megan Siminitus

Hello! Welcome to my classroom website. My name is Megan Siminitus and I'm the high school Autistic/Life Skills Support Teacher. I graduated from Minersville Area Junior/Senior High School in 2008. I went on to attend Millersville University where I majored in Special Education. I received my Bachelors of Science in Education in the fall of 2012. I've been working in the Minersville School District since 2013. I'm currently working on my Masters in Special Education at Alvernia University. I love working in my hometown community. 

In addition to running my classroom, I'm also the assistant band director and a part time waitress. When I'm not teaching, coaching or waitressing you can find me spending time with friends and family, shopping, and drinking coffee.
