Meet Mr. Dave Ksanznak Acting Principal at WBH

Please welcome Mr. Dave Ksanznak (Mr. K) to the New Lebanon community as Acting Principal at WBH. Mr. K will be taking on the role as principal at WBH while Mr. Noble is on medical leave.

Mr. K comes to us with over 30 years of experience in education. He spent most of his career in the Bethlehem Central School District, serving as principal in a couple of different buildings and retired in 2021 as the principal of The Hamagrael Elementary School after many years of leadership.

During the last few years, he has taken on various roles throughout the region, including coaching soccer, serving as the interim athletic director at Schalmont CSD, and substitute teaching at Bethlehem CSD.

Mr. K is originally from New Jersey and taught at schools in Washington D.C. and Fairfax, Virginia, before moving to upstate New York. When he isn’t working, he likes to cook and attend Bruce Springsteen Concerts (he’s been to 89!). He has three children whom he and his wife like to visit.

Mr. K said he’s looking forward to getting to know the students and staff at WBH, being in the classroom every day, and making sure they have everything they need to be successful.

Please feel free to reach out to Mr. K with any questions or concerns you have.
