Mr. Lesniak

Assistant Principal - Haines and Oster-Oakview

About Me

Welcome to the Haines-Oakview Campus!

My name is Ed Lesniak and I am excited to be serving as the Assistant Principal at Haines and Oakview Schools this school year. While this school year will have no shortage of challenges, I can't wait to have students in our buildings again! My wife and I recently moved to New Lenox with our daughters because we love this community. Harlow just turned 3 and Zuri just turned 1. This is my 11th year in NLSD122 and there is not another district I'd rather be in. I previously served as the music teacher at the Tyler-Bentley campus before moving to the Haines-Oakview campus. I'm looking forward to continue working with our amazing staff and students and I can't wait to meet our new first grade kiddos. If you have any questions, never hesitate to call the school or email me.
