Mrs. Samantha Best

Hi Everyone! My name is Mrs. Best and I am extremely excited about this school year! I am a Warsaw native and a James Kenan graduate (2015), so I have a lot of love for this school and the community we serve. This is my second year teaching Band and I am looking forward to meeting all of you!

I hold a Bachelor's of Music degree in Music Education (K-12) from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (2019). I graduated Cum Laude as a member of the Esther G. Maynor Honors College. I am also a member of the National Association for Music Education as well as the professional music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota.

I will hold office hours once a week for parents and students to check in if there are any questions. They will be on Fridays from 1 PM to 2 PM.  Email me to receive the link to the Google Meet for the Office Hours. I can be reached at during the school day and also during the office hours. Please allow 24 hours for a response to your email.
