Called to coach

Ever since she can remember, Bridget Longmeier has been part of a team. Whether it was as a student athlete or in her career as an educator, Bridget has always been drawn to opportunities where people work together to achieve a common goal. Combine this with her natural tendency to be a helper and leader, and it makes perfect sense that Bridget would emerge as a coach.

Before she began her role as Remote Coach, Bridget used her BA in Elementary Education from Indiana University to launch an 18-year career working with Seymour Community Schools in southern Indiana.

During her time at Seymour, she immersed herself in every possible opportunity to learn and grow and was always willing to share with colleagues via her blog, newsletter, and an always-growing Google drive. She spent years field-testing the strategies she learned from Smekens before ultimately joining our team as Remote Coach.

Bridget and her husband, Jason, live in Seymour, IN, where their three school-age children keep them busy with church, school, and whatever sport is currently in season.
