A little about myself: This is my 19th year of teaching! However, this is my 3rd year at East School as a Reading Interventionist! My first 16 years of teaching were spent at Belair Elementary and I have taught 5th, 1st and 2nd grades!
I attended college at Hannibal LaGrange University in Hannibal, MO and received my Masters in Education at the University of Missouri/Columbia. I have been married to Mr. Long for 17 years, and we are the proud parents of 11-year-old triplets! We also have a sweet, spunky 6-year-old. I guess I will have to wait longer for the day Mr. Long will get me a dog... (It is a dream of mine to have a therapy dog that could come to school with me each day). We also love to go on vacation as a family, whether that is near or far! This past summer we got to go to South Dakota which was a beautiful place for social distancing! I also love coffee, Target, reading, and singing.Visiting the Silos in Waco, TX & We will do anything to feed all these mouths#dresslikeacow
