Meet Lynne Block
Lynne Block is a 50+ year resident of West Vancouver and a recipient of the prestigious Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence.
Born in England, Lynne studied at West Vancouver Secondary School, then completed a B.A. in Education and an M.A. in Education Administration at UBC. After receiving her Teaching Certificate, Lynne worked for over 30 years as an elementary and secondary educator in the Burnaby School District. She founded the Youth Engaged in Social Responsibility (Y.E.S.) Forums, co-founded a new ESL (ELL) program, and served as a Department Head of English and Vice-Principal.
A thought leader in education, Lynne has trained school districts in Metro Vancouver and Northern B.C. She has also been invited to lecture to faculty and students in the Departments of Education at Douglas College, Trinity Western University, and Simon Fraser University. She has served as a plenary speaker at the B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) Annual Leadership Conference.
Committed to her community, Lynne has volunteered her time to the West Vancouver Awards Committee, “Lifelong Learning” seminars at West Vancouver Library, the North Shore Youth Justice and Family Court Committee (VAWIR), and the International Society for Key Women Educators (B.C.).
Lynne raised two children in the public and private school systems in West Vancouver. When she is not working as a part-time educator for the North Vancouver and Vancouver School Districts, assisting her mother, or volunteering in the community, she enjoys spending time with her 18-month-old grandson Harrison (pictured throughout the site) at John Lawson Park.
