Greetings Red Devil family. My name is Matthew Long, and I am a math teacher here at Newton-Conover High School. I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Western Carolina University with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. of Education in Mathematics.
As for my personal beliefs on education, I am a firm believer that every student can learn. Each and every individual has a purpose in my classroom. I feel that it is my responsibility as the teacher to facilitate student learning, engaging students in higher order thinking through collaboration and problem solving activities. In this way, they will grow academically and socially, such that they will become more marketable and competitive for future endeavors.
I look forward to staying in contact with parents/guardians, but if you would ever like to contact me at additional times, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If face to face contact is needed, I would be more than happy to schedule a meeting.
Outside of the classroom, I am the head Cross Country coach and an Assistant Track and Field coach. If you would like any information about either of our teams or schedules, it will be my pleasure to help answer any questions.
I feel blessed to work in such a wonderful community, and greatly look forward to working with students and families here at Newton-Conover.
