Hello Families! Welcome to PreK at Global Arts Plus!
My name is Mary Morgan and I have taught in St. Paul Public Schools for 19 years, 15 of which have been here at Global Arts Plus.
Outside of GAP, I enjoy walks with my dog, home projects, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
GAP's committed staff, supportive families, and enthusiastic students, make Global Arts Plus a place where great learning happens every day. I feel fortunate to be part of this very special community.
The coming months of distance learning are likely to be many things; adventurous and fun with possibly a bit of frustration and confusion thrown in. My hope is to support you in any way I can to ensure your child has a successful year of learning. Please contact me via email or phone (number coming soon!) with any questions or concerns you may have. I can't wait to meet you!

*ANY TIME/ASYNCHRONOUS (Self-paced) INSTRUCTION- Explore Independently or Ask the Teacher time. Students will use SeeSaw to view and complete lessons when they choose.
