3rd Grade Team

Hi... my name is Ashley Long and I am so excited to return to the third grade team! I am actually a graduate of McKeel Academy of Technology. After graduating from MAT, I attended the University of South Florida and earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I am so blessed to have only ever taught right here at MAC! After teaching third and fourth grade for several years I decided it was time for a change. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to teach first grade for the past five years. I grew so much as a teacher and learned a tremendous amount about the foundations of teaching reading.  As I begin my thirteenth year teaching, my personal philosophy remains the same- no matter the age of the students in my class. I strive everyday to provide a classroom in which every student feels loved, welcome and uplifted- only then can we begin to learn together. 

Looking forward to an AMAZING year...
