Mrs. Taylor Heimrich
Hello! My name is Taylor Heimrich. I’m the new school counselor at Fairview Elementary. I’m a Union County native and graduated from Piedmont High School in 2011. I went to Appalachian State University and earned a bachelor's degree in Child Development. After working in Charlotte for a bit, I decided to go back to school to become a school counselor. I graduated from Liberty University in 2018 with a Master’s degree in School Counseling. Since then, I have worked as an elementary and middle school counselor in Richmond County Schools. This year is my 5th year in education and my 1st year in Union County Public Schools. I have recently relocated from Southern Pines, North Carolina and currently live in Indian Trail with my husband and our Dachshund (Ollie) and kitty cat (Myla). In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, crafting, reading, and going to Appalachian State football games (Go Apps!). Fun fact about me is I was born on the day of love, Valentine’s Day! I'm looking forward to a great school year and feel very blessed to be a Fairview Wildcat.
