Science, Math Teacher, Dance& After School Teacher/Director.
Mr. Long is a graduate of Wyoming Catholic College, where his major in liberal arts provides a well rounded teaching experience. He has enjoyed teaching children of all ages for years in some of the most important subjects they need to succeed now and in the future.
We are lucky to have Mr. Long teach science because he also has a history of teaching Latin (which is the base for science words). He also literally soars with the children during dance especially after winning a competition with his swing dance group. He not only uses his teaching skills during class time but in the after school care he helps students with homework and more hands on projects.
