About Mrs. Best

My name is Mrs. Katherine Best, and I will be your child’s 5th grade Science and ELA teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. This is my seventh year teaching and my first year at Orange Grove. 

My husband and I have two children, named Jennings and Audrey. We also have a dog, Darla, as well as a crazy cat named Hank. Although I grew up on James Island, our family now lives here in West Ashley. Some of my favorite things to do are read, ride horses, bake with my kids, swim, and go to the beach.
