Mr. Besser

Hello and welcome Families and Students to 2nd Grade at Global Arts Plus!

My name is Mr. Besser. I'm a second grade teacher at Global Arts Plus. This year will be my 15th year here at Global Arts Plus. It is my 31st year teaching in SPPS. Prior to teaching here I taught at Mississipi Creative Arts for 16 years. 

I am passionate about so many things at Global Arts Plus School . We have  the most amazing students. I love how we use the arts as a platform to make connections and deepen learning. All my life I have enjoyed the arts. Throughout my life I have sung in many choirs. I have had piano, violin, guitar and trumpet lessons. I have taken photography and pottery classes. In high school I participated in theater. I still love music, especially listening.

One thing you should know about me is I love to ride my bike. I get on it most days. Over the past two year during the Covid pandemic I have ridden over 6,000 mile.

Finally I am passionate about teaching. I love to read books. I know we will all read so many good ones together this year. Can't wait to get started. s.

This year will be a time of growth and learning for all of us, so families, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at with any questions.
