welcome to my personal profile
Welcome to my Personal Profile

My name is Lindsey Kanary and this ‘personal profile’ is a quick introduction of myself and of my background that I bring to teaching.

I was born and raised on Vancouver Island, where I have lived and studied for most of my life.

I am currently living in the Comox Valley with my husband and two children age 5 and 2.

I have just completed my Education Degree where my final practicum was spent with grade 8’s, 9’s and 11’s teaching math, science and biology

my education and life experiences
My Education and Life Experiences…
  • I graduated with a BSc in Geography and Biology from the University of Victoria.  It was during this time there I studied biogeography on the west coast of Vancouver Island looking at the Gray Whale population and how it relates to the annual variability of local kelp beds.
  • While living in Victoria, I also competed nationally and internationally in track and field, specifically women's pole vault.  
  • I have travelled extensively through Central and South America during which time I gathered a greater understanding and appreciation for the beautiful landscapes there and the many cultures and traditions of the local people that it supports.
work and life experiences
Work and Life Experiences
  •  For the last 8 years I have worked with the Ministry of Forest and Range as a wildland firefighter and Protection Assistant.  This job has allowed me to travel to remote areas for both fire suppression and program teaching. 
  • I have always maintained a healthy and active lifestyle that I promote with my own children by playing sports, exploring the local beaches, forests, or snowshoeing and skiing on the local mountains.
  • I am a recent grad from the Vancouver Island Education Program, and I am proud to be a teacher!
  • I believe students can and will thrive when they feel supported, respected, valued and challenged.
  •  It is my goal to have every one of my students feeling proud and responsible for their own learning and chosen pathway!

  • I decided to become a teacher after having my own two children, as I fell in love with watching them grow and explore the world around them and I wanted to share these feelings with others.
  • I feel that kids are happiest and learn best when they are offered content that sparks their curiosity and truly interests them.
  • From experience, I found that this is often accomplished outside, exploring the world around them and being presented with a variety of texts and materials

  • In my classroom I will work to promote trust among my students towards each other and trust in me.
  • It is my hope that this trust will lead to respect.
  • I think this becomes possible when students see their teacher as human; someone who can laugh with them, acknowledge their own mistakes and asks for their feedback and input to improve everyone’s learning.
professional development and school community
Professional Development and School Community
  • As a students teacher I have attended several Professional Development Seminars offered throughout several districts. Completed a ‘non-violence crisis intervention’ workshop, hold a valid first aid ticket and level one coaching certification. I have volunteered with the Jr. Girls basketball team and chaperoned the grade 8 Christmas dance
  • Currently I am helping coach a grade 8 girls basketball team and am looking forward to being apart of the 2012 track and field season
my goals
My Goals

I hope toinspire and empower students to continue with their own lifelong processes of inquiry. I hope to encourage and support them in thinking responsibly and critically and to always act with integrity when dealing with themselves and their community. I am striving to be a combination of all those wonderful teachers who have made a difference in my life, specifically those who were clearly doing what they loved and loved what they were doing.
