Welcome to Horace Mann! My name is Stephen Goodwin and I am the Principal of the Horace Mann School. This fall marks the beginning of my 28th year working in public education. I first was a special educator for nine years within the LABBB (Lexington, Arlington, Burlington, Bedford and Belmont) Collaborative. For the next thirteen years, I served as a Principal within the Carlisle Public Schools, Winchester Public Schools and Wellesley Public Schools. Most recently, I spent the past five years as a Special Education Program Coordinator for the LABBB Collaborative overseeing various programs at the middle and high school level. Prior to teaching, I graduated from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine with a major in History. Along the way, I completed two Masters degrees, one in Intensive Special Education and the other in Educational Leadership. In addition, I completed a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Boston College. On behalf of the Horace Mann staff, we welcome you to our school community.
