Named Faculty Chairs

Horace Mann School is proud to cultivate a learning environment that values, rewards and renews teaching excellence.  While we actively recruit wonderful teachers at every grade level, and have a strong program of professional development and evaluation in place to ensure that faculty members will continue to learn as well as teach, we also believe in recognizing teaching excellence.  Members of our community, including current parents, alumni, and parents of alumni, have supported our efforts to recognize both scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning by establishing the following named Faculty Chairs.  (For more information about individual Chairs, see the alphabetical listing at the bottom.)
