Mrs. Lurinda Long
Hello! I was born and raised in Boise, and I am a BSU alum and football fan. My love for working with kids started during my yearlong service in an AmeriCorps program in the Federal Way, Washington School District. During my year with AmeriCorps I confirmed that working with students, sharing my love of learning, and being in an elementary school was indeed, what I wanted to do “when I grew up.” After AmeriCorps I came back home, finished school, and have been teaching ever since. I am very excited to be starting my second year here at Siena Elementary!
I just got married to my husband, Cody, last summer and now officially have three stepsons. The boys are 15, 14, and 12 and definitely keep us busy! I love watching them play sports and perform with their school band. They all have their dad’s sense of humor and keep me laughing non-stop.
I love to go indoor rock climbing with my younger sister Lisa. She is a perfect partner and I love having an excuse to spend some sister time together. Before Covid, we went every week! I also enjoy fishing, playing with my cat and dog, reading, solving puzzles, drinking coffee, and learning new things.
I look forward to getting to know you and your student this year!
