Ms. Susan Pickart

Welcome to the 5th Grade Community!   I am so glad you are here!  This is going to be an exciting year for your child.

This will be my 11th year at Horace Mann.  I live in the city with my husband Mark.  We have two boys who are graduates of St. Paul Public elementary schools. We love being a part of the community here and take advantage of all that is offered in our great city!

I enjoy building community, collaborating with families, and working together to build a strong foundation.  I believe it is important to try many new things and immerse yourself in any new environment.  I also believe that together we can find your child's talents and strengths.  Every child contributes to our community and I feel honored to watch them grow in confidence ,finding out who they are along the way.

My goal is to help each child reach their academic potential and support their leadership skills.  This year will pave the path in preparing them for their next journey to middle school and beyond.
