It is my pleasure to write a letter of reference for Sylvia
She teaches a Chakra Systems class for the Salem Area Program
with Chemetka Community College. Sylvia approached the college
to teach this class in 2000. We worked together to write a
outline, develop a flyer, and promote the class. As we offered
the course, it became clear that students would have a better
learning experience if we expanded the class to three weekly
sessions rather than a two day intensive workshop format.
As we grow and develop the course, Sylvia has been responsive,
flexible, and creative.
In a written assesment of her class, the majority of the students
gave Sylvia excellent ratings for her clear objectives, knowledge,
preperation, enthusiasm, willingness to give personal help,
and selection of instructional materials.
Under the question, WHAT WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS COURSE?
"The instructor was incredibly knowledgable,
and very engaging. She made the material easy
to understand, and was consistently open and
receptive to questions."
"The instructor's presentation style and knowledge..."
"Sylvia was an enthusiastic and knowledgable teacher.
She took a diffucult subject, and condensed it and
explained it well."
"The class was structured yet relaxed enough to feel
free to ask questions. The instructor was excellent
and had a visible love and understanding about what
she was teaching. She has inspired me to continue on."
Students found the subject matter and the instructor
to be very positive. When asked,
HOW DO YOU PLAN TO USE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED?
"I will be using the material to make positive
changes to my life."
"To be able to think more about why
"...to treat others how I want to be treated."
I do the things I do that are negative."
I have found Sylvia to be a very positive person who is dedicated
to teaching. When I took her class, I was impressed by the depth
of her knowledge and skill at creating a comfortable atmosphere
for learning. This is essential in a class where students
discuss personal issues.
I have enjoyed working with Sylvia.
She has a special ability to connect and communicate with people.
I have found her to be dependable, organized, and professional.
She has a passion and dedication to sharing the lessons
of the Chakra systems, and the personal power of choice.
