Welcome to the Fairmount Elementary School website! My name is Kimm Smith, and I am honored to serve as the principal at FES! This year marks my 25th year in education, 14 of those in the Gordon County School System. My educational career began in the Bartow County Schools as a 5th grade teacher. After my family and I moved to Gordon County in 2000, I was hired at Fairmount as the school media specialist. The rest is history! I have served the FES community over the last 14 years as a media specialist, assistant principal, and now principal.
My education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism (Public Relations) from the University of Georgia, a Masters degree in middle grades education from West Georgia College and a Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University. I am also certified as a media specialist.
Fairmount is a small, community school but we have high expectations for student achievement as evidenced by the receiving of the United States Department of Education's highest honor as a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School. for academic gains. Fairmount was awarded a Title I High Performance Reward School for the State of Georgia in 2013. We will continue during the 2014-2015 school year to provide engaging instruction that will lead our students to think beyond their boundaries and perform above the standards.
