Deeper Thinking | Confident | World Ready
Lindsay Penther was born and raised on St. Thomas in the beautiful U.S. Virgin Islands. Being raised in the Caribbean has allowed Lindsay a number of unique opportunities to work with children of many different backgrounds. She began working with children from a very early age, as a junior camp counselor. Her dream was to one day become a teacher. She moved to Canada in 2006 and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Ryerson University in 2010. She continued her education and received her Bachelor’s of Education from Nipissing University in 2011. Lindsay is an Ontario Certified Teacher and has been upgrading her qualifications ever since. She has recently received her qualification to teach at the Intermediate level. Since graduating from Teacher’s College, Lindsay has taken on a number of different roles, from supervisor of a before and after school program run by Upper Canada Child Care to working as an Early Childhood Educator with the York Region District School Board for 5 years. Lindsay is thrilled to be a part of the Richland Team and is thoroughly looking forward to work with the amazing staff and children.
