Welcome to LCISD GT
Misty Ortega
GT Facilitator

Hello! My name is Misty Ortega and I am the GT facilitator for Long Elementary. This is my 16th year in education. I am a graduate of Lamar Consolidated High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, and my Master’s Degree from Relay Graduate School of Education.

My goal is to create an engaging learning environment where students can learn from and inspire one another.  In my spend time, you’ll find me hanging out with my three teenage children or walking my dog, Vinny. I enjoy reading, coffee, and cheering my kids on as they compete in sports and theater. 

Feel free to contact me anytime at
