Mrs. Dorothy Long
Welcome to Pre-AP Algebra I and Algebra 2! My name is Dorothy Long. I have been married 32 years and we have 2 boys: Christopher 26 and Brandon 17. I am from Alexandria, Louisiana and moved to Pearland in 2011, so this will be my 9th year at PHS. I am Oiler Proud!
Education: In 1990, I received my BS degree in Mathematics Education from Louisiana College. In 2010, I achieved a personal goal of mine which was to pass my National Board Certification in Adolescence and Young Adulthood Mathematics. I feel that it is importand to have goals and work to achieve them. 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'm here to "help students learn"! I make myself available to the my students via tutorials, Canvas, and One Note. I am here to help my students prepare for the next step in reaching 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.
