Lindsay Lindsay is a resource teacher in the school district with 15 years of experience supporting children with exceptionalities. She didn’t set out to be a teacher, as she worked for the Ministry of Children and Family Development and as a education assistant after completing her psych degree. Once in the classroom as support staff, she knew it was back to school to become a teacher and make a career change. Later on, a diploma in inclusion was also completed to fulfil her role as a resource teacher. When not at work, Lindsay is a wife and mom of two children, ages 11 and 13. She also enjoys time outdoors, running, and spending time with family and friends. Lindsay’s diverse experience provides a rich perspective when collaborating with families and school professionals.
