Hello! My name is Mrs. Long and this is my ninth year of teaching at East Side Elementary. I started out as the third, fourth, and fifth grade special education teacher and have been in fifth grade since! I earned my degrees in education from Ivy Tech and St. Mary of the Woods colleges.
I have been married for four years to my husband, Jason, and we enjoy spending time with our spoiled dog daughter, Livvy. I live south of Terre Haute in the country and am an outdoors spirit. I enjoy exploring nature through hiking, kayaking, hunting, and fishing. I am a fan of yoga, the Chicago Cubs, Harry Potter, reading, trying new things with friends, and chocolate.
I apply a whole-child approach to teaching in my classroom. We are all unique and capable in our learning abilities as well as in our personal interests and I enjoy implementing activities to not only promote academic growth, but to help motivate students to be their best selves in this world. I look forward to learning with with my class each day!
