Mensagem:  Actually no. Because when an ADJ. is placed before a NOUN it modifies that NOUN; would you mean the teacher "is a long teacher" ? Native speakers would frown upon that sentence.

On the other example, "you've had the longest", the idea of time is very clear, and time is implied (after longest).
