Laehn, Dave

It’s a Great Day to be a Bangor Cardinal!!!

Welcome to my webpage

Laehn Teacher Page

  Hello, my name is Dave Laehn and I have the privilege of serving as your superintendent for the Bangor School District.  This is my sixth year in Bangor and I feel so fortunate to work in such an great school district.
My wife, Sheryl and I live in Bangor.  Sheryl also works in our district in the Elementary School as a Title I reading teacher.  We are the proud parents of two sons, Jason and Anthony, both graduates of the University of Minnesota.  Jason, who is a captain in the Army, is stationed at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia where he lives with his wife Kalli.  Anthony is currently attending UW-L to become a high school math teacher.
It’s hard to believe but this is my 30th year in education.  I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees from UW-La Crosse and my administrative certification from Winona State University.  I started my career as a Spanish teacher and basketball coach in the Mondovi School District and my administrative career in Independence where I became a middle/high school principal in 1996 and superintendent in 2001.
I am looking forward to an awesome 2017-18 school year and I believe that working together as a community, parents, students and staff, that we can make it another Great Year to be a Bangor Cardinal.  
Please feel free to stop in anytime or you can always contact me at 486-5202 or at

Thank you.
