About Me

My name is Susan C. Bunch My skills and areas of expertise include educational administration, strategic planning, budget preparation & accountability, program & curriculum development, public relations and community enhancement. My professional title is director of schools at Lexington City School System, which specializes in educational administration. I received my master's degree in education from the University of Memphis with advanced Certifications in Educational Administration & Curriculum Development/Instruction and my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Tennessee.

I have been a teacher, a supervisor of Instruction, a college professor, an Assistant Commissioner of Education for the State of TN, a program director for a not-for-profit educational foundation in Mississippi funded by the Kellogg Foundation, and an adjunct university professor.

I am currently on the Board of Directors of the TN Organization of School Superintendents and the TN School System for Equity. I hold committee memberships on the Leadership Council and the Accountability Committee for the TN Department of Education. I am a member of AASA and ASCD and serve on the Board of the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce. I am a new member of NAPW . On March 18, 2015 I will be confirmed by the Tennessee Senate Education Committee as a new commissioner of the Tennessee Textbook Commission.

I am in my seventh year as the external evaluator for Mississippi Institutions for Higher Learning for their summer instructional improvement programs for middle school teachers funded by Title II at 12 universities across the state of Mississippi.

My hobbies and interests include traveling to Key West with my husband 2-3 times a year and shorter trips to any beach whenever possible. We are Parrot Heads and attend Jimmy Buffett concerts and the yearly Meeting of the Minds convention with the rest of the "flock" in November in Key West. My husband and I enjoy our land-locked beach house in Lexington, Tennessee. I love to read anything by Southern authors. I am a political news junkie, and love entertaining, cooking, and gardening. I am drawn to and passionate about charitable organizations such as St. Jude's Children's Hospital, our system's Back Pack Program which sends week-end food home to our most nutritionally needy children, and organizations which support animal rescue and adoption.
