Nancy Schulman is co-author (with Ellen Birnbaum) of "Practical Wisdom for Parents: Demystifying the Preschool Years" (Random House/Knopf, 2007; trade paper, 2008). She has been the director of the 92nd Street Y Nursery School since 1990 and has been involved in independent schools in New York City for more than 30 years. She is an educator of parents, teachers and children and is highly regarded by her colleagues in the New York City early-childhood community. She loves to work in an environment where "it is not possible to stop learning," and she believes "there is no more important time in the life of a family than the first five years." She lives in New York City.
