"Mr. Long has changed my perspective on math. I truly didn't like math until I came into his class. I saw how much he believed in all his students and how much they could achieve. I finished his class with a high grade and a new-found love for math. Hopefully when I am a teacher one day, I can make an impact on a student as he did on me."

"I'm used to being very overwhelmed and frustrated by the end of math class and for this one that’s not the case. I have never been in a math class where by the end of class I fully understood what was happening. I like that he gave us a chance to ask many stupid basic questions so we understood and broke down what he was already very simply explaining so everyone was up to speed."

"Mr. Long seemed to care if we all knew what was going on and he helped until we got it. It really helped me build on what I already know and makes me feel better about math. He was one of my best teachers I've had in high school. He gave his all to help us."

"I love how the class is a nice slow pace and he makes sure we all understand what’s going on."

"Mr. Long’s humor created a great atmosphere for learning in the classroom, and less tension between students."

"The goal that stuck out most for me was his goal about providing a basis upon which you can use this math for the future. Because in every math class I've had I always think to myself, “How can I use this later in life.” And the fun part about your class is I know I’m going to use this math again."

"When I first entered high school in Algebra 1, I didn't know anything, nor learned anything. Geometry was no different. But when junior year came around and Algebra, Functions, and Data Analysis came, I actually started to learn more about math and started to understand what was going on. I have learned more in the 4 months of school this year than in the other 2 years of algebra and geometry that I have taken."

"Mr. Long is a great teacher. He has helped me out and gone beyond the call of duty as a teacher. He is consistently on everyone’s level and the grades of the students in his class show it. Math by no means is my best subject, but Mr. Long helped me make sense of it. He’s 100% one of the best teachers I've ever had."
