The Lynbrook Public Schools recently appointed Leah Murray as the new principal of West End Elementary School, starting July 1. Ms. Murray will take on the new building administrator role previously held by Dr. Cindy Lee who is retiring at the end of the month.

Ms. Murray enters the district with more than 14 years of experience as an educator and leader. Since 2017, she has served as the assistant principal of PS 169 Bay Terrace Elementary School in Bayside, where she showcased her commitment to students and her school community as a whole. Among her many responsibilities, Ms. Murray crafted and implemented school goals, led various professional development workshops, designed a school-wide digital curriculum tool to support curriculum programs and helped implement social emotional learning tools in the classroom. Prior to her role as an assistant principal, Ms. Murray served as a general education teacher and also a special education teacher where she continuously demonstrated her passion for student engagement and success.

She attended St. Bonaventure University where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education and her Master of Education degree in Literacy. Ms. Murray furthered her passion for education by receiving New York State certification in School Building Leader from CUNY Queens College. She also holds New York State Certification in Literacy (Birth to Grade 6) and in Childhood Education and Children with Disabilities (Grades 1-6).

“I feel so proud to be joining the West End Family and the Lynbrook Community,” said Ms. Murray. “I am looking forward to making meaningful relationships with all the students, staff and families! I can’t wait for all the learning and the fun we will have next year and the years to come.”
