    1st Grade


    Lindsey Schultze: lschultze@horrycountyschools.net

    I grew up in Horry County and have been teaching for 8 years. 5 of them have been at Ocean Bay Elementary! I am a graduate of Coastal Carolina University and currently in my last year of Graduate School there. Spending time with my family and reading are my favorite things to do when I am not teaching or studying. I am excited for the 20-21 school year and how much we will all ' Learn. Grow. and Achieve. " from this unique year.

    I am originally from a small town in New Jersey, but have been a part of the Carolina Forest community for 9 years. I have always taught first grade here in Horry County after I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from Coastal Carolina University. Before I began my career in education, I taught many styles of dance to children of all ages for 10 years. I still love to incorporate music and movement into the classroom now! I am eager to meet my new kiddos and share my passion for learning with each of them!

    I was born and raised in the Midwest and have lived in beautiful South Carolina for two years. I have 24 years experience in education, and love that no two days are alike. In my free time I enjoy walking and playing with my two dogs, reading and spending time on the beach. I'm excited to meet our incoming 1st graders, and look forward to getting to know them and being their during Ms. Fungaroli's absence.

    I am a New York native but have lived in Myrtle Beach for the past 10 years. This will be my 7th year teaching first grade at Ocean Bay Elementary. Last year, I was honored to be named OBE's Teacher of the Year and two years ago I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership. I love going to the beach, shopping, exercising, spending time with my family and friends and exploring new places. One thing I'm most excited about for the '20-'21 school year is trying new things and meeting my little students. Even though things will be very different, their smiling faces will make it all better!

    I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania and moved to Virginia where I taught kindergarten and first grade for 20 plus years. My family relocated to South Carolina 3 years ago. Since then I have worked at OBE in a reading intervention position and as a first grade teacher. I enjoy walking my dogs and spending time outdoors as much as possible. I look forward to building new relationships with my students and families.
