3rd Grade Team
Hi... my name is Ashley Long and I am so excited for this school year! 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 five years. I grew so much as a teacher and learned a tremendous amount about the foundations of teaching reading. Last year though, I was very excited to come back up and join the third grade team again. As I begin my fourteenth 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...
