Dr. Sylvia Bereskin has always been passionate about learning and about women’s experience of the world. As an educator (she’s taught from Grade 3 to graduate school), she has always looked beyond the experience to the meaning. Now, as she is about to enter a new part of life (commonly referred to as retirement) she is exploring the meaning of this transition.
Dr. Bereskin has published numerous articles (sometimes under an earlier name – Sylvia Solomon) including Necessary and sufficient conditions: the lives of eminent Canadian women (1989, in Ellis, J. & Willinsky, J. (Eds.): Girls, women and giftedness. New York: Trillium Press.
She is the daughter of a holocaust survivor, sister of three talented women, the mother of three very interesting children, and Baubie to three beautiful grandchildren.
She lives in Toronto, Canada with her sweet husband David and their dog Isis. They all love hiking.
