  • Barbara Schilling, Centre Director

    Barbara Schilling

    Centre Director

    Barbara received her Bachelor of Education degree from UBC. She taught in various North Shore Elementary schools. After taking time out to focus on her family, she returned to the education field through tutoring at Sylvan. She worked as a teacher in the Maple Ridge Sylvan for several years until she took on the position of Director. Being a life long North Shore resident, it seemed a good fit to continue with Sylvan in North and West Vancouver. She says Sylvan provides a wonderful opportunity to support families and to see children succeed and thrive.
