Subjects Taught
6th Grade Social Studies


     I am a graduate of Whitwell High School, class of 1998.  I earned my BS at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN.  After four years of teaching I went back to TTU to obtain a Masters.  After receiving my Masters, I decided I also needed an EdS.  My masters degree allows me to teach college level and the EdS is required for Principal or Vice Principal positions.

    I began my teaching career in 2002.  WMS students, parents, and faculty are my home!  Go Tigers!


      I was born and raised in Powells Crossroads.  My parents, Red and Tina Melton, taught me the importance of hard work and education. 

    I married Barrett Long on October 7, 2006.  Barrett and I both went to WHS.  We had our first son, Kasen, on February 10, 2012. 

    The Long family loves animals dearly.  We have a farm where we raise cattle. We have two dogs, and we are thinking of getting goats!
