Message from the Principal
Culler Parents and Guardians,
Hello! I’m Michaela Hahn and I’m excited to introduce myself as Culler’s new principal. I feel extremely honored to have the opportunity to serve the Culler community. For most of my professional life, I have had the great fortune of working with students and families in Northeast Lincoln. I love the culture of pride and tradition and am beyond thrilled to get the opportunity to serve the students, parents, and teachers at Culler.
Before winter break, I had several conversations with Dr. Czapla and spent a full day at Culler, observing classrooms and meeting students during breakfast, lunch, and dismissal. The welcoming culture of caring was evident throughout the building. I was extremely impressed with the level of learning and engagement that I observed in the classrooms. Culler is an incredibly strong school and I look forward to helping continue that tradition of excellence.
Below you will find a link to a video some former and current Cougars helped me put together. Please take a few minutes to check it out!
Finally, as I continue my journey in learning all I can about Culler, feel free to contact me with any insight or questions you might have. Go Cougars!

We are very pleased with the hard work students have exhibited so far this school year. I do have a few reminders and some calendar events to pass on:
- Did you know that we currently have 149 students in our ELL program?
- The first languages of our ELL students include: Arabic, Chaldean, Chin-Zomi, Ewe, Farsi, French, Hindi, Japanese, Karen, Kurdish, Mandarin, Palauan, Pashto, Portuguese, Spanish, Tagalog, Ukrainian, Vietnamese (18 languages)

- Immediately following the conferences, there was a LPS Strategic Planning meeting in the Culler Media Center.
- We need Culler Parents to share their thoughts, hope and dreams for Lincoln Public Schools with our school board so please take time to fill out the survey. Thank you for your support.
- Thanks so much for the Culler flag donation to the Cross Country and Track teams. We are proud of our runners and the way they represent!
