Assistant Principal Lower Campus (Grades PreK-4) - Danielle Beck
Greetings Global Arts Community,
I am THRILLED to be returning to Global Arts Plus for the 22-23 school year as the assistant principal of the Lower Campus! In my 18 years as a licensed educator, I have taught grades 1-8 at schools in Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Roseville, and I am now a proud administrator at SPPS! I have a strong background in math and have previously served the roles of math lead and middle school math department chair. I am currently a part-time professor of Elementary Math Methods for prospective teachers at the University of Minnesota.
I live in St. Paul with my husband and am a proud dog mom of my puggle, Missy. Both of whom left Las Vegas 7 years ago to be with me when I moved to Minnesota. On the weekends, I enjoy trying new restaurants, completing jigsaw puzzles, and cheering for the Green Bay Packers – sorry Vikings fans. As a lifelong learner, the world is my classroom. When school is not in session, I enjoy traveling to different countries and immersing myself in a culture different from my own. My mission is to develop a deep love of learning within all students at Global Arts Plus.
I look forward to working with you and supporting our Global Arts Plus community in all ways possible. Please reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns. My door is open.

Assistant Principal, Lower Campus (PreK-4)
Assistant Principal Lynn Bourgoyne at Upper Campus (Grades 5-8)
I am very excited to be joining the team at Global Arts Plus for the 2022-2023 school year as the assistant principal of the Upper Campus! It is hard for me to believe that next year will be number 25 for me in SPPS! Yikes! I started in SPPS as a Business/CTE high school teacher and after teaching for 13 years, I began coaching for school improvement as a specialist for secondary schools, PK-8 buildings, and Montessori elementary schools. In addition to my K-12 Principal licensure, I hold licensure in reading, business/marketing/CTE, and K-8 computers/keyboarding. I completed my Bachelor's Degree at Mankato State University and my Master's in Literacy Education at St. Mary's University of Minnesota, Winona.
I live in the North End of St. Paul with my significant other, Jason. We have been together for 10 years! Jason was a chef, so obviously we are into local food opportunities, food trucks, farmers markets, and supporting neighborhood small businesses. When we have the time we like to travel, especially short trips to Minnesota small towns to enjoy local culture, fish, and visit family.
I look forward to working with students, families, and staff to become part of the community and culture at Global Arts Plus.
