Mrs. Taylor Ballew
Hi, my name is Taylor Ballew. I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! Fifth grade is a year full of fun, learning, and making memories. I can't wait to see what this school year has in store for us!!
I am a proud product of Gordon County Schools. I attended W.L. Swain Elementary, Ashworth Middle, and Gordon Central High School. After high school, I attended Dalton State College. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education with an ESOL Endorsement in 2016. This is my third year teaching 5th grade at FES, and I can't imagine myself anywhere else! Fairmount is definitely my home away from home.
I married my high school sweetheart, Tyler Ballew, on March 31, 2018. We recently bought a house and moved to Dalton, Georgia. I am currently the Assistant Cheerleading Coach at Sonoraville High School. There I coach three Varsity squads: Football, Basketball, and Competition Cheerleading. Most of my free time is spent at SHS sporting events. GO PHOENIX!!!
It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students so that they have the desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. It is best to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Class Dojo. I look forward to a great year together!
