During her first three years in Nevada Mrs. Gruenberg taught in the KIDS program for preschoolers with autism.
Mrs. Gruenberg is dedicated to bringing out every child’s full potential. She has earned a reputation for successfully partnering with parents and other team members to ensure the maximum development of skills for each of her students. Many of her preschool students now spend some portion of their school day in general education classrooms due to her dedication and support. Mrs. Gruenberg teaches in a 2nd grade general education classroom, and always volunteers to have children with autism placed in her classroom during their general education curriculum. She provides ABA tutoring for children with autism after school and she still keeps in touch with her preschool families. She loves to hear and see how each of them has developed!
