Raguwarman Kanagalingam


About Me

My name is Ragu Kanagalingam, and I moved to Tulita in 2017 to teach high school mathematics and science. Before moving to Tulita, I taught middle school in Gameti, Northwest Territories, for the 2016-2017 school year. Teaching is actually my second career, but I feel was my lifelong calling.

I was born in Sri Lanka, and my family came to Canada when I was two years old. Since then, my family has called Toronto home. I graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Civil Engineering, and worked as a Civil Engineer for about five years before going back to school to pursue a career in Education. I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degree in education at the University of Ottawa.

At the University of Ottawa, a colleague who had been teaching in the North for several years convinced me to move up, and needless to say, the North is more magnificent than he described. The people, culture, lifestyle, scenery. It is unlike anything else.
