Mr. Michael Mackney

My name is Michael Mackney and I’ve been teaching with Elk Island Public Schools since 2006. I joined the pack of Lakeland Ridge in 2018, and am excited to be part of the wonderful school culture and community. I have spent most of my time teaching primary years of education, most recently as a grade three teacher.

“Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” -John F. Kennedy

This quote is one that has always been of interest for me and one that fits my philosophy in the classroom. Your child will be challenged to take their understanding of their world and further develop their critical thinking to discover new things about themselves and their surroundings.

When not at school, I enjoy being active with various activities such as volleyball, curling and basketball. Much of my time is spent playing card games with my two boys and sharing in their interests.
