Amanda Gruenberg

This is my seventh year teaching at McAuliffe Elementary. In 2006, I graduated from Union Public Schools. I  moved to Stillwater to attend Oklahoma State University. I graduated in 2010, receiving my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education and licensure in Early Childhood Education. I love that McAuliffe provides students with opportunities to take ownership of themselves, their learning, and their environment. I believe that all students have an ability to achieve. Sometimes it takes several pathways to get there, but teaching students to persevere and believe there is value in the journey matters. I get most excited reflecting with students about the growth they have made throughout the school year. There is nothing comparable to the bright shining light in a child's eyes. I am looking forward to another great year of kindergarten.
