Mrs. Dorothy Long
Welcome to Pre-AP Algebra I and Algebra 2! My name is Dorothy Long. I have been married 31 years and we have 2 boys: Christopher 25 and Brandon 17. I am from Alexandria, Louisiana and moved to Pearland in 2011, so this will be my 8th year at PHS. I am Oiler Proud!
Education: In 1990, I received my BS degree in Mathematics Education from Louisiana College. In 2010, I earned my National Board Certification in Adolescence and Young Adulthood Mathematics, which is one of my most proud achievements in the field of education. I love MATH! I know that's weird, but it's true. My students think I get too excited that this stuff.
Teaching philosophy: I am not in the classroom to teach, (seams weird, since I'm a teacher), I believe that I'm here to "help students learn"! I know the best thing I can do for my students is to prepare them for the next step in order to reach their goals in life. If they don't learn what they are supposed to, then I am setting them up for failure next year. The best way to achieve this goal is to gain their respect by being personable, caring, compromising, respectful, and lots of times forgiving. My students start everyday with a clean slate. I do not let what they did yesterday interfere with how I treat them today.
