Barbara taught second grade in Metuchen, New Jersey and in the Half Hollow School District in Dix Hills, L.I. at the start of her career in Early Childhood Education. Before moving to New York City, Barbara was a Head Teacher at the Dix Hills Jewish Center Pre-School where she taught toddlers and three and four year olds. She was instrumental in developing the Mommy and Me Program where she was the facilitator of parenting groups. There is nothing more gratifying and rewarding to her then participating in the growth and development of young children; it is her passion.
