  • Assistant Principal Al Levin at Lower Campus (Grades PreK-4)Al

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  My name is Al Levin and I am proud to be the Global Arts Plus assistant principal at the Lower Campus.  I have worked in Saint Paul Public Schools for approximately 20 years. 

    I started as a teaching assistant before going back for a teaching license in ESL and Japanese. Once licensed, I became an English Language Learner (ELL) teacher. After teaching for several years, I became an ELL Resource Teacher and began my path to administration. I have worked as an administrator for the past 15 years.

    I have four children (Julia, Georgia, Isabel, & Sam) and a wonderful wife, Jill, who was a Saint Paul Public School PreK teacher, until taking a leave when we had twins in 2011.

    I am excited and honored to be working at Global Arts Plus!

    It is my pleasure to stamp your educational passports this year! My name is Cherise Ayers, and I am incredibly excited to be your Assistant Principal. I have been an educator for the last 16 years, and have worked in elementary, middle, and high schools. I was born and raised in Saint Paul, and completed K-12 in our district! I have a B.A. in English from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, and a M.A.T. from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. I am looking forward to a promising and productive year with the Global Arts Plus community!
