Mrs. Shelly Long

This is my 22nd year of teaching.  I taught 2nd grade for seven years in the Waynesville R6 School District, Gifted Education for five years in Iberia and two years in Camdenton, and have been in fifth grade for the past seven at Freedom.  I live in Waynesville with my husband, Jason, who teaches the alternative program and coaches High School Boys and Girls Soccer at School of the Osage, and my two sons, Logan and Garrett. Both of my children enjoyed playing soccer, and I loved being a "Soccer Mom." My oldest son, Logan, is a graduate of WHS, and is currently working in Real Estate in Osage Beach. My youngest son, Garrett, is a graduate of Osage High School, and just began Barber School at Paul Mitchell in Springfield.  I also have a Toy Aussie named Rue, a Boston Terrier named Otis, and my son’s Heinz 57 dog, Roxy.

My husband and I coach many youth competitive soccer teams and run an indoor soccer facility.  I enjoy running.  I have run several 5Ks and one 10K over the past few years. I am hoping to work my way up to a Half-Marathon!  I also enjoy reading and riding horses.

I am looking forward to this virtual school year and working with you and your student!
