Dave Langenbach

I am Dave Langenbach. I have been driving a school bus for Bethlehem for 6 years. Before that, I drove for 17 years for the Guilderland school district.  During that time, I was instrumental in forming what has become Guilderland's mini bus program.  We took an old electric golf cart and built a school bus body on it - flashing lights and all! It has since been busy traveling to their elementary schools teaching bus safety.  One year after that was complete I became the director of Guilderland's bus safety team.  During those three years we did all the in house stuff as well as traveling to local malls and the Altamont Fair where we did presentations in conjunction with Albany County Traffic Safety Council.  I have competed successfully several times at the local Bus Rodeo where local bus drivers are put through various challenges and then graded.  I look forward to many more years with Bethlehem's BEATeam as it grows and improves and continues its mission of keeping everyone in the district safe.

Bruce Austin

I am a school bus driver for the Bethlehem District and I enjoy working with young people as evidenced by my ten years as a physical education teacher and my twenty years as a high school guidance counselor!
My favorite sport is baseball. I played for 4 years in high school, two years in the US Navy and fifteen years as the founder and manager of the Bethlehem recreation League.
It was an awesome moment when the Masonic Lodge made me “Man of the Year” for my work in baseball…but the coolest thing was when I played against Sachel Paige and his All-stars at Newport Naval Station.
But honestly the best thing I can share is my beautiful wife, children, and adopted daughter – we brought her home from an orphanage in Rostov, Russia!
