Principal's Bio

Elementary Principal, PK-6



It is with great enthusiasm that I call the Stuart M. Townsend Elementary School my home.  Go Eagles!

I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year.  

This district has high expectations of character and citizenship.  I am reminded of that each day I pass through the halls and notice, “Be Kind, Work Hard, and Be Your Best.”  These character traits follow the district mission statement and core values of treating all with respect and having a positive daily attitude.

On a personal note, prior to joining the Hadley Luzerne Leadership Team, I was a sixth grade teacher for eleven years in Queensbury.  Most recently, I was an assistant principal for the past three years at Queensbury High School. My family and I live in Lake George. My wife, Christene and I have three daughters and two granddaughters.  

Thanks for your partnership as we look to make this school year a fantastic one!

Best Regards,


Jon Baker
