Mrs. Lindsey Ballew
My name is Lindsey Ballew, and I am first-grade teacher. I recently graduated from Athens State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. This will be my first year teaching, and I couldn't be more honored to be at Athens Elementary! I fell in love with the school, the kids, and the staff during my internship last fall.
I am from Ardmore, Alabama, which is where I currently live with my family. My wonderful husband Pat and I have been together for 8 years. We have the sweetest, happiest baby named Noah, who will be one in December. We also have a very spoiled teacup chihuahua named Boss Man. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and traveling.
I taught tumbling and coached cheerleading for 9 years before becoming a teacher. Doing so helped me realize that teaching was my passion. I love building relationships with students, and watching them learn and grow. My main goal is to make sure all of my students believe in themselves as much as I believe in them.
