My name is Gatha Longley. I am the counselor at Bridgeport Elementary School. I came to this district in 1996. Previously, I was the counselor at Mound Elementary and Taylor Elementary in Burleson, Texas. Family illness brought me back to my hometown of Bridgeport. I graduated from Bridgeport High School. My undergraduate degree is from Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City. My graduate degree in counseling is from Emporia State University, Emporia, Kansas. I have two sons who also graduated from Bridgeport High School. After graduating from Texas A&M, they decided to become teachers. My two precious grandchildren made my life even more special!
I love working with the students at Bridgeport Elementary! Some of my current students are the children of students I had when I first started in Bridgeport. My door is always open to a child or parent who needs my services.
