Dear Parents,

It is with great pride and regret that I announce that Ms. Lindsey Kubera, our awesome Special Education Teacher is leaving Lower Lab.  After eight years, at our school, she has accepted the position of Assistant Principal on the upper west side.  Our students and the entire Lower Lab community have benefitted tremendously from her hard work, empathetic nature and excellent skills as an educator.  I know she will be sorely missed as a colleague and a friend.

At this time, please join me in welcoming Ms. Hanna Richman to the special education position.  Ms. Richman has been working at Lower Lab as a teacher assistant, demonstrating her abilities in the third grade last year and currently in the fifth grade.  She is smart, thoughtful and extremely dedicated.  Her exceptional organizational skills will also serve her well in her new position.

Hanna will be completing her Master’s Degree from Hunter College with dual certification in Childhood Education and Special Education this spring.  She comes from a family of educators, one of her favorite places to visit is the Strand bookstore and she plans to train for a marathon in the near future.

I want to assure you that there will be a smooth transition as Lindsey will have opportunity to work with Hanna prior to her departure.  Please join me in congratulating both Lindsey and Hanna in their new positions.  Here’s to continued success for all!


Sandy Miller
