Dr. Karleen Kemp, Executive Director
EROS Services, LLC was founded by Dr. Karleen Kemp, an educational leader who has transformed and managed multiple K-12 school systems. Dr. Karleen Kemp was educated in the Newark Public Schools and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Graphics (minor in Computer Science) from The College of New Jersey, a Master’s degree in Graphic Communications Management and Technology from New York University, a Master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, and a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from Kean University in Union, New Jersey.
Dr. Kemp’s passion for developmentally disabled students was driven by her administrative role as a K-12 Special Needs Principal for urban and suburban school districts. Through her experience, it helped her to recognize the need to establish a loving, trusting, quality educational program, with a superior support system for the developmentally disabled community. As she observed the need for additional support, she noticed areas of potential improvement and pledged to one day develop her own learning program for persons with developmental disabilities.
We all have unique and personal learning styles, as a previous principal, and a continued educational leader, Dr. Kemp is uniquely aware of the challenges faced by all involved in the educational process. It is so important for our youth and for adults to have a solid educational foundation and support system utilizing real-life skills. As an educator, the adult population must have accommodations and support to be successful. Her motivation is driven to see the success of youth as they transition into adulthood.
EROS Services, LLC was formulated to ensure superior service, quality learning, integrity, and love (EROS). Dr. Kemp’s passion is to change lives by helping adults to become life-long learners and employable citizens.
