Welcome to FES! My name is Rebecca Champion and I'm the Assistant Principal at Fairmount Elementary School. I'm a lifelong Fairmount resident. I love our school and community. This is my 16th year as an educator. I'm married to Jeff Champion and we have three children, Gregory (18), Bethany (16), and Naythan (10). We live on a farm and are huge supporters of agricultural businesses and initiatives.
My educational experiences are...I've been a 4th and 5th grade teacher, an interventionist, a Title 1 teacher, and I'm beginning my 5th year as an Assistant Principal. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Middle Grades Education from Shorter College (now Shorter University), by Masters in Middle Grades Education from the University of West Georgia, and my Specialist in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University.
I have a burning passion to help students learn in environments that support individual learning styles. I strive to support teachers and staff in ways that help them grow as educators. I work diligently to build relationships with families, always keeping an open door policy.
I feel honored to serve the FES students, parents, teachers/staff, and community partners in this role.
As an alumni of Fairmount Schools (1979-1991), my roots run deep here. I am proud to be a Fairmount Bulldog!
