Linda Kucza


My name is Linda Kucza and I am your New York Parent Involvement Facilitator (PIF). My job is the BEST EVER! I get to help make sure your child has everything they need to be a successful learner here at New York! Ask me about school events, BackSnacks, our food pantries, services in our community, reading and math tips, and anything else you might need (like school supplies, winter coats, etc.). I'm here to help! If I don’t know the answer to your question…I will find out for you!!

Before taking the job as the PIF, I was a New York’s building substitute. I had just entered my eighth year of substitute teaching this fall when the opportunity to be the Parent Involvement Facilitator came up. Prior to working as a substitute, I was a teacher right here at New York Elementary.  I taught 4th grade or Title Math until my retirement, at this very school!! 

When I am not working at New York, I stay busy with my two roommates, DaisyRona (Golden Retriever) and SnowPants (Siberian Husky).  I also keep busy with family since my three children all live in Lawrence along with a lot of wonderful grandchildren and even GREAT-grandchildren!!  I’m a lucky person to be able to extend my caring to the New York students and their families!! The people at this school have been my extended family for many years!

Call me (785-330-1717) or stop by my office…it’s the first door on your left as you enter our building.  I hope to meet you soon!!
