    What's up? I grew up outside of Philadelphia. I have bee teaching for 8 years now. I enjoy going to the beach with my family, or trying to untangle the gordian knot. I am excited for the new year and adventure that lays ahead with learning on and offline. I am excited for the 3rd grade party.

    I was born in Hendersonville, NC. I moved along the East coast growing up, as my family was a part of the DuPont business. I graduated from Neumann College with a Bachelors in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I have been living in Myrtle Beach for the past 15 years.

    Originally I am from Bensalem, PA, which is right outside of Philadelphia, but I have lived in Myrtle Beach for 20 years. This is my 8th year teaching third grade at OBE! I have three children of my own in HCS. Two of them are in high school and one is in middle school. I am so excited for this school year and can't wait to see all of our OBE students again!

    Hello! My name is Rich Petricig and I was born and raised in Indiana, PA. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) with a bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. This is my fifth year living in South Carolina and being part of Ocean Bay Elementary. I am a huge Pittsburgh sports fan including the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates.

    I am a proud “Military Brat” from all over. I’ve been teaching for 24 years, having taught 1st,2nd,3rd, and 4th grade. My hobbies are reading, skiing, and biking. I’m most excited about what 2020/2021 will bring.

    I grew up in the scenic Hudson Valley of New York State, about 60 miles north of New York City. My husband and I have been married for twenty-three years and we have four children ranging in ages from nine to twenty-two. We have called Myrtle Beach our home since 2004, enjoying the beach days of summer and the temperate weather of winter. Although this school year may progress differently in some respects, I am excited that school will resume and students will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best teachers in Horry County. It is my honor and privilege to work with such an amazing group of teachers, students, parents, staff and volunteers here at Ocean Bay Elementary School!

    I am originally from Columbia, SC but moved to the beach 11 years ago and we love it here. I have 15 years experience in 1st - 3rd grade classrooms. My husband Kris and I have 2 boys, Myers (16) and Tillman (14), and a miniature dachshund named Jackson. I love Clemson football, hiking trails and watching sunsets at the beach with my family. I am looking forward to being a part of the OBE family this year!
