Hello, I'm Suszane Stansbury and I have worked in the Rutherford County School District since 2004 both as a teacher and as an administrator. Being a longstanding community member and former Rutherford County student, I can attest firsthand to what a wonderful school and community we have! After graduating from LaVergene High School, I completed my Bachelor’s Degree at Cumberland University and my Master’s and Education Specialists Degree at Middle Tennessee State University. I am happy to introduce my family beginning with Ryan, who graduated from Smyrna High School in 1997, is now a local attorney in Murfreesboro. Together we are the proud parents of our very athletic six-year-old, Kelten and an independent 18-month-old Kasen. We purposefully chose to stay in Rutherford County to raise our sons in the same school system that prepared us so well. The standard of excellence in this school system is second to none.


I believe that educating children is a privilege and a gift. As a school, we take this responsibility seriously. We all work together so our BES Hornets know they are a valuable part of our Buchanan family.


I look forward to a successful school year for everyone!
