A farewell from Ms Leman

 mslemanDear PS 32 families,

With a heavy heart, I am writing to let you know I will not be
returning to PS 32 for the 2016-2017 school year.

This summer has brought many new exciting changes for me. I was recently married and my husband received an amazing job offer in California. We are making the move to the Bay Area just before the school year begins.

I have loved my eleven years at PS 32. I have learned so much from my colleagues and especially my students. I will miss them terribly. I am saddened to leave, but excited for the new opportunities for my new family in California.

Please let your kids know I will try to visit PS 32 at least once or twice this school year, as I plan to return to the NYC area to visit my family.  I would love to hear from my old students!

Thank you all so much for your support and generosity throughout the years. You are an amazing group of families!

Wishing you and your children all the best for the future school year and beyond!
