Mrs. Lurinda Long


My name is Lurinda Long.  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 another year here at Siena Elementary! 

I am married and have three stepsons. The boys are all teenagers 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 weekly with my younger sister Lisa. She is a perfect partner and I love having an excuse to spend some sister time together.  I also enjoy fishing, playing with my cat, reading, solving puzzles, drinking coffee, and learning new things. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your student this year!
