New SAU 19 superintendent settling in to new post
At first, he thought it was a joke when Principal Wendy Hastings called at 10 a.m. saying the school had no power because of a transformer failure. But, Balke and the school staff quickly went into action.
Balke, 41, of New Boston, wears many hats — he’s a husband and father; a school administrator; a teacher of graduate studies in leadership, psychology and special education at Rivier University and Southern New Hampshire University; and he is pursuing his doctorate in education. His dissertation will focus on the culture and climate of schools and the correlation between student achievement.
Balke said helping to transition Dunbarton’s middle and high school students to Bow has been a lot of work, and he is fully committed to making the move smooth until all elements are fully in place.
