Degrees and Certifications:
Meet Mrs. Long
My name is Melissa Long and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! I am originally from Durham, North Carolina. I graduated from Meredith College in Raleigh after majoring in Child Development and receiving my K-6 Certification. In 2013 I earned my National Board Teacher Certification in Early Childhood. This will be my 21st year teaching Kindergarten and my 13th year at Powhatan. I absolutely love it! I thoroughly enjoy being in the classroom working with your children and getting to watch them grow and learn. My husband and I have 3 wonderful boys and 1 furry girl to keep us busy. We love to cheer for the Carolina TarHeels and the Clayton Comets. Our family is active at First Baptist Church, Clayton where I enjoy singing in the SonRise Choir and teaching the Children's Choir. I look forward to spending my days with your child! It's going to be a great year!
