Hello and greetings from second grade! My name is Susan Levandowski and I am one of the four second grade teachers at Rosa Parks Elementary. This is my 24th year of teaching with the last 18 being in the Mankato Area Public Schools. I have taught first, second, fifth and sixth grade throughout my career and love being in the world of second grade. The energy and enthusiasm seven and eight-year olds have for school and life is contagious. I feel very fortunate to work with children every day!

I grew up in Owatonna with my four older brothers and parents. My mom still lives there, so we enjoy  our visits there. I continue to be surrounded by boys in my family! My husband, Jim, and I have three sons that are 10, 16, and 21. We like to keep busy with their activities as well as spending time outdoors and playing board games. I also enjoy walking, biking and scrapbooking.

I graduated with my teaching degree from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota. I received my Master's Degree from Saint Mary's University.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime about our second grade year. I can be reached at 387-7672 or my email at .
