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 fifth 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. On March 18, 2020 we were blessed with our daughter, Fallon. She is the best addition to our little family! We currently reside in Dalton, Georgia. I am also 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 or through Class Dojo. I look forward to a great year together!
