    Karen Howle: khowle@horrycountyschoools.net

    I grew up in Florence, SC. My husband, three boys and I moved to Myrtle Beach in 2004. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, knitting, and watching classic movies. I am starting my 19th year teaching and my 13th year at Ocean Bay this year! I am so excited to get back to teaching and hopefully in my classroom!

    I was born in Statesville, NC but have spent most of my life in Myrtle Beach. I have taught Pre-K all the way up to 2nd grade. My family and I enjoy camping, DIY projects, and anything to do with the great outdoors. I am so excited about the many new things that we will ALL learn this year!

    I am a local of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University, with a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education. I began my journey in education many years ago. Since then, I have been blessed to be a stay-at-home Mom for my three children, as well as own a Taekwondo School with my husband. I have worked with children from 3 years-old and up. I taught second grade at Seaside Elementary and Myrtle Beach Primary. I look forward to creating lasting memories with my Ocean Bay Elementary family!
