Miss Land

Hello! My name is Jourdan Land and this is my 8th year at Longfellow Elementary. I teach Special Education for students in grades 3-5. I am also the freshman girls' basketball coach. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Chadron State College and my Master's degree in Reading PK-12 from the University of Nebraska Kearney. In addition, I am a Certified Wilson Reading Dyslexia Practioner. I enjoy watching Husker football and Kansas Jayhawk basketball. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends-- especially my furry friends, Jess and Buddy! 


  • Summer Slide By the Numbers 

    Why is summer reading so important? Well, the numbers don’t lie. 

    Students who read during the summer gain an average of 1 month of reading proficiency. Students who don’t read lose an average of 2-3 months proficiency and over time, those lost months add up to years. By high school, 2/3 of the reading achievement gap can be attributed to summer learning loss during the elementary years. (Source: https://www.booksourcebanter.
