Principal Lisa Carrigan

  • It is hard to believe that I am in my 29th year of being an educator in Saint Paul Public Schools, and almost 10 of them being the Principal at Bridge View School and Focus Beyond Transition Services.  I love working at Bridge View because the students make my day brighter every day and I am lucky to work with staff who put their heart and soul into everything they do to help students learn and become as independent as possible. 

    I received a Bachelor's Degree from UW Stout in Child Development and Family Life (Social Work), a Master's Degree from the University of Minnesota and obtained my K-12 Principal License at St. Mary’s University. In addition, I have been an adjunct professor at the University of MN teaching classes on special education to future teachers. 

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, live music and being outdoors. 

    Peace and Kindness to you all.
