It takes a village to raise a child and I can truly say the teachers, deans, and faculty members all had a hand in pushing, guiding, and challenging my child to a higher level academically. All six character pillars of caring, citizenship, honesty, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness has helped make him a better person.

Meet The Team

Mr. Long

Founder and Executive Director
Dartmouth College

Lester Long graduated from Dartmouth College in 1993, where he majored in Economics, while also concentrating in Government. Immediately thereafter, he started his career in investment banking, rising from an entry level analyst to Vice President within six years, and working for firms such as Societe Generale and Lehman Brothers.

With a desire to share his success, Long began a second career teaching elementary school in the South Bronx through the New York City Teaching Fellows Program, which places accomplished professionals from other fields in the City’s most under-performing schools. Mr. Long taught literacy, mathematics, music, and physical education to general and special education students of all grades. While teaching during the day, he earned a Master’s in Elementary Education from Hunter College at night.
