Sylvia taught in her hometown of Dayton, OH. for two years, and then on to Michigan State University where she taught for 3 years. Sylvia was a professional educator, and a 40 year veteran of the Columbus City School District. She specialized in grades K-8 and unique techniques centered around performance art. Sylvia was also an instructor training teachers at The Ohio State University, and Thurber House in Columbus Ohio. Sylvia has been repeatedly published in prominent education publications.
