Professional Staff Karen Horowitz is an experienced early childhood professional with a background in teaching, administration and parenting education. She has a masters degree in elementary education with certification N-6. She believes passionately about the importance of the early years in helping children reach their optimal potential. Since parents are their child's first teachers, support for parents in that role is essential and every parent needs a boost of confidence at some time. Parents need to know they are not alone in trying to do what is probably the most important job in the world for which there is the least preparation.
