Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Katie Cribb

We are going to have the BESt year in second grade!  I love teaching and look forward to working with your child as we learn together.  I have taught for seventeen years, primarily in second grade.  I graduated from USC in 2005 and earned my Master's degree in Reading Education in 2017.  I am certified in both early childhood and elementary education, with additional certifications as a literacy teacher, coach, and specialist. I also obtained my National Board Certification in Literacy in 2020.

My husband teaches math at Dutch Fork High School, and we live in Irmo with our three sons; Luke, Ryan, and Austin. Luke is 12 and attending DFMS, Ryan is in 4th grade at BES, and Austin will be joining me at BES this year in Kindergarten! Our favorite activities are riding bikes, reading, going to the beach, and grilling out with family and friends.  I look forward to working together as partners in your child's education this year!
