Mrs. Gabrielle Long

For the past 14 years, I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Northwest R1 school district.  What a beautiful place to live. Jefferson County not only has a tight community, but it offers such a scenic landscape of hills and valleys.  Although I am not from Jefferson County, I feel a connection to the community due to my time spent at Valley Middle School.  My family is all grown up!  My family is made up of my husband and two boys (20 and 22), and a plethera of pets.  My elementary and high school education were spent in private catholic schools which provided me with a rigorous education and a strong work ethic.  I bring this mentality to my students and colleagues everyday.  Although I appreciate the financial sacrifice that my parents made to send me to private schools, I have often been jealous of the opportunities that students receive in the public schools.  I wanted very mch to play in an orchestra or marching band, be on a dance team, or take an industrial technology class.  These activities and classes were not open to me because the schools that I went to just did not offer them.  This makes the education that your student receives rich and diverse.  It also provides for them the chance to explore their passion which will serve them well as they make decisions for college or trade schools.



I always look forward to having deeply involved parents, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.  I am easier to reach by e-mail, but usually follow-up with a phone call because so much communication is lost without hearing another human being's voice!  



I typically return calls during plan time and at the end of the day between 2:30-3:00PM
