Ms. Lauren Long
My name is Lauren Long, and I have been a teacher at James A Arthur Intermediate for 4 years. I teach Essential Academics. My degree from UTA is in Criminology and Criminal Justice. When I was younger, I wanted to be a juvenile probation officer and reach at-risk youth before they became adult criminals. I decided the best way to reach the youth would be teaching them. I got my certification to teach in 2010, and I began teaching reading in Arlington ISD. I got the opportunity in 2016 to work as a teacher in the Special Education department at JAA, and I have ABSOLUTELY loved it!
