Note From The Principal

 Greetings Parents and Families of Horace Mann Elementary,


    My name is Susan Field and I’m extremely happy to be the Principal at Horace Mann.   I’m very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality educational experience.  I have served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 37 years.

    Some of the roles I have held are elementary & middle school classroom teacher (1st, 4th, 8th), Shawnee Middle School assistant principal, and for the past ten years  I have been the Horace Mann principal.   My academic background includes a Bachelor of Science in Education, Master of Education in Administration, and Masters of Education in Reading.  

    As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – teachers, students and parents- are excited to be here.  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  We are FAMILY!
