In honor of Horace Mann School’s 125th anniversary the HM Alumni House and Development Office is presenting a series of webcasts by Horace Mann teachers on subjects of interest to alumni of all ages. These webcasts provide our alumni around the world, as well as Horace Mann School students, faculty and families a chance to see first-hand how Horace Mann teachers continue to fulfill HM’s mission of preparing “a diverse community of students to live great and giving lives.”
The webcasts are live-streamed, and provide a chance for listener questions. They are also archived to enable listening and viewing at times most convenient to you. We have hosted three webcasts thus far, and look forward to your joining us for more in the future. The descriptions and links to previous webcasts by teachers Dr. Jeff Weitz, Chris Jones, Charles Worrall, Dr. Elisa Milkes, Dr. Susan Groppi, and Dr. Dominique Padurano can be found below. Please look out for announcements of upcoming webcasts at www.horacemann.org/news and on HM Facebook. We look forward to your joining us for these stimulating and thought provoking interactive discussions.
