Hello and welcome! I am Chelsea Best, the District Gifted and Talented Teacher for grades 1st - 4th. I service students from East Side, West Side, Joe Wright and Fred Douglass.
This is my 6th year in education. I taught 1st grade at East Side Elementary in the ALC Program for 5 years. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree from Stephen F. Austin in 2014. I have been married to Joshua Best for 13 wonderful years and we have 3 amazing kids. Landon is 11, Leah is 9 and Luke is 2. I am passionate about education and believe that every student should be valued. It is my goal to create positive and challenging learning environments where students are confident to take risks, make mistakes, succeed and grow! I am so proud to be part of the JISD GT Program!
