Wausau School District

Mrs. Sue Engel

Hello! I am Mrs. Sue Engel the IMC director at Horace Mann Middle School. IMC stands for Instructional Media Center or for traditionalists "The Library".  I am a licensed K-12 media specialist who has worked with the Wausau School District for the past 26 years. I spent my first 10 years as an elementary media specialist. I have been at Horace Mann Middle School for the past 16 years. I am a teaching librarian and am excited to instill a life long learning and information skills in our students.

My mission as a library media specialist is to help my 6 through 8th grade students achieve their academic and personal knowledge goals as well as instill a lifelong love of learning and reading. The Horace Mann Middle School IMC is a safe and friendly place where all students can learn and find support and guidance for their academic goals and personal information needs and interests. Being a library media specialist is not just career but a way of life.

IMC - Virtual Learning Days and Office Hours

The Horace Mann IMC has many resources to offer students, teachers, and parents during our virtual learning days. Digital and on-line resources can be found and accessed through the Horace IMC Page and the Horace Mann IMC Course in ItsLearning.

I co-teach and work in conjunction with my ELA colleagues to create meaningful information and digital literacy lessons. These lessons will be accessed by your children thoughout the week during their virtual ELA class times. I have provided a list and links to those lessons on the Horace Mann IMC ItsLearning course page as well.
