Painting, sculpture, collage – from preschoolers to fifth-graders, these art activities and more are what Sylvia does with every student. Since joining St. Peter’s in 2015, Sylvia has also helped with performing arts scenery and back drops, wall décor, and special event celebrations like Wonder Night.

One of the things Sylvia enjoys about our school community is how St. Peter’s teachers work across curricula to make the most of lessons. “I am constantly coming up with new project ideas based on the lessons homeroom teachers are conducting as well as projects that involve other specialty classes. We are a team that works together for the benefit of our students.”

Sylvia and her husband, Brian, have one dog named Pippin. In her free time, she loves to paint and create in her home studio, focusing mainly on watercolors. She also loves going on hikes and looking for inspiration in the natural world.
