Sylvia Solomon

Dr. Sylvia Solomon is a retired educator with over thirty years in elementary schools, secondary schools, and several universities including UWO, U of T, York, Trent and Queen’s. For the last fourteen years of her career, she worked at the Ontario Ministry of Education where she helped establish the Ontario College of Teachers, coordinated the rewriting of all of the high school curriculum when Ontario devolved from five years to four.   Her work in curriculum policy and resources changed teaching and learning in Ontario and embedded Holocaust Education learning expectations in a number of courses.
Since retiring Sylvia wrote a book (For The First Time: One Woman’s Journey from Career to Retirement ) and has now begun a sequel which has begun as a blog (For The Last Time. forthelastime.com ) in which she is planning to explore the transition that faces all of us once we’re 70 for sure – moving into and planning for a vibrant and meaningful old age.
Sylvia has taught the Great Trials that Changed the Course of History series at Ryerson, U of T, Toronto Public Library, numerous synagogues and groups, the 92nd St. Y in New York, and the Instituto d’Allende in San Miguel, Mexico.
Her focus has always been social justice in education.
