Welcome to Stadium High School!

This is my 1st year teaching at Stadium and my 7th in my 2nd career as an educator.  Already, I am thrilled to be part of one of the most fascinating high schools in the Pacific Northwest you can ever imagine!  My passion is to educate your student for life-long learning to thrive and succeed in this global, diverse world...  There is no place like Stadium that educators like me can't not do just that!  In fact, one of my greatest joys in past years is to hear quite a few students tell me that I have turned them around from "hating" math to actually enjoying it...  My commitment is to help all students explore, discover, challenge, and trust themselves to excel in the work that they do, build confidence and rapport by believing in themselves, manage time wisely, practice humility, learn soft skills, and attempt to reach their optimum levels no matter the circumstances they're in, so that they will ultimately succeed in high school and beyond.  As the saying goes, "Our families are the first classroom and our parents are the first teachers..."  Together we build a child's foundation toward a meaningful and purposeful future!  Thank you for entrusting your student to us!  I can best be reached by email:  long@tacoma.k12.wa.us

"If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is.  But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be."  --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
