Counselor's Corner » Home


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.
Being a parent/guardian is the most important role you can have in this life.  Below are links I hope you will find helpful:
