Hello! My name is Mrs. Long and I am very excited to be joining the 6th grade team at Sparta Lincoln! I am thrilled to be your teacher and I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun and many adventures! 

There is so much that I am looking forward to this year! Some of the topics we will study in 6th  grade Social Studies are Ancient History (think Romans, Greeks and Egyptians),Geography and if possible, Medieval History.
