Mrs. Noel Ballew

Hi! My name is Mrs. Noel Ballew.  I have taught preschool to 3rd grade for over 20 years, and I am so excited to be teaching first grade for my third year at VOE! I moved to Crestline in 2017 with my husband Jason, my son Boden, who will be entering the first grade, and my daughter Susan, who will be entering TK. Some of my favorite things about teaching first grade are how much students progress in reading over the year, teaching science concepts like seasons of the year, and watching chicks hatch from our own class incubator. I love being a part of such a wonderful school and community!


Education: I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Lewis & Clark College in beautiful Portland, Oregon, and I earned a Master’s Degree and Teaching Credential from the University of Phoenix.
